διαβάς.—the sentence, containing five participles, is an example of what Dionysius calls τὸ πυκνόν of Thucydides; Cicero speaks of him as pressus, Quintilian as densus. The participles that denote closely connected parts of the same action are joined by καί. ἐπιτυχών = ὡς ἐπέτυχε. πλῷ χρησάμενος—‘after a good passage.’ πλῷ = εὐπλοίᾳ, as in I. 137. (Some make πλῷ χρησάμενος merely = πλεύσας, but Antiphon V. 24 πλοῦς ἡμῖν ἐγίγνετο καὶ ἀνήγετο πλοῖα ἄπαντα seems decisive.)
