τὸ πρὸς βορέαν τοῦ κύκλου τεῖχος—either ‘a wall to wards the north of the fort,’ or ‘the wall north of the fort.’ It is not clear whether τὸ πρὸς β. agrees with τεῖχος or not. Thuc. distinguishes κύκλος from ἀποτείχισμα.

αἰεί—with παρέβαλλον.

βραχύτατον—the distance from the κύκλος to Trogilus (ἐπὶ τὴν ἐτέραν θάλασσαν) would be about a mile and a half, and the same from the κύκλος to the harbour.

ἐγίγνετο=ἔμελλον ἔσεσθαι, Schol.
