σφε is prob. governed by ἐκέλσαμεν as well as by θέντες. The acc. after “κέλλω” usu. denotes either the ship or the place; but cp. Ph.236“τίς ς᾿, ὦ τέκνον, προσέσχε κ.τ.λ.” (n.).—The boat would be rowed from Cape Cenaeum to the harbour near Thermopylae (633 n.), a distance of about eighteen miles; thence Heracles would be carried some six miles to Trachis. The shortest sea-passage would be across to the Locrian coast (788 n.); but the longer land-journey would be more trying for the sufferer.
