κατά τε τὴν τέχνην—as their work required it and in the excitement of the moment. ἐπιβοῶντες—anacoluthon after πολλὴ . . . ἐγίγνετο, as in c. 42.2. Badliam and Herwerden bracket it on the ground that Thuc. would have written ἐπιβοώμενοι. But it is quite possible to consider the κελευσταὶ as a separate body from the ὲπιβάται and other combatants, who are indicated by τοῖς Ἀθηναίοις. περὶ τῆς—in defence of, περὶ standing in the sense of ὑπέρ, as often in Demosth. εἴ ποτε καὶ αὖθις—if ever again. ἀντιλαβέσθαι—absolute, as in II. 8.1. 61 ἐπαυξῆσαι—means to add to the importance of a person or thing.
