ἐν τῇ Τανάγρᾳ—i.e. in the neighbourhood of Tanagra.

τῇ ὑστεραίᾳ μάχῃ—to be taken separately, τῇ ὑστεραίᾳ having ἡμέρᾳ supplied. Herbst, who investigated the use of the phrase, came finally to the conclusion that alone it means ‘on the next day,’ but that sometimes a subst. is supplied from what precedes, in I. 44 ἐκκλησίᾳ, in VII. 11 μάχῃ.
