Ἐχινάδων—the object of this digression is probably to show that it was as difficult to attack Oeniadae by sea as by land.

προσχοῖ—‘forms deposits.’

ἠπείρωνται— = ἤπειρος γεγένηνται. οὐκ ἐν πολλῷ—c. 17, 2.

τοῦτο παθεῖν —pass. of τοῦτο δρᾶν, as c. 11, 8, 49, 5. This has not happened, as the sea carries away the deposits. Cf. Herod. II. 10.
