ἐς ἀλκὴν ὑπομεῖναι—‘stand their ground to the point of resistance.’ For ἀλκή see on c. 30, 2.

τὸ κατ᾽ Εὐρύλοχον—‘that part where Eu. was.’

τὸ πολὺ τοῦ ἔργου ἐπεξῆλθον—both έξ- and έπεξ- can have the accus.: the latter is the normal constr., and it is not certain that there is any parallel for the former in Thuc. In I. 70 the MSS. vary in the same way as here. § 2 l. 15.

μαχιμώτατοι—this refers to οἱ Ἀμπρακιῶται only, not to οἱ . . κἑρας, who are the few Peloponnesians on the right wing. This restricted reference is so awkward that it is not unlikely that καί after Ἀμπρακιῶται ought to be removed, so as to render ‘the A. on the right wing.’
