ἐμβολαὶ . . . προσβολαὶ—the distinction drawn in note on c. 34 l. 25 accords with Poppo. But the explanation of Arnold fits the passage better: ἐμβολὴ, Arn. says, is the attack made by a ship with her beak, in the regular manner. Προσβολὴ is more general. Here it denotes accidental collisions. But elsewhere it means a regular charge. ἀνακρούσεις . . . διέκπλους—see on c. 36.4 ll. 29, 37. ἄλλῃ—sc. νηί.
