σταύρωμα—a palisade stretching out from the shore into the water.

ἔρυμα—somewhat SE. of the camp.

εὐεφοδώτατον—i.e. open to an attack by sea and land.

λίθοις λογάδην=ἐπιλελεγμένοις λίθοις (Schol.): the adv. does not occur in other Attic writers, and the adj. λογάδες for prose only in Herod., Thuc., and in late writers, Thuc. has a way of placing an adv. next a noun so that it belongs to it rather than to the verb, as in VII. 7 ὅπως στρατιὰ ἔτι περαιωθῇ, ‘remforcements.’ The same occurs in Tacitus and in Lat. poetry.

γέφυραν—the Helorine road crossed the Anapus (Alfeo) by this bridge.
