ἀνακειμένων . . . ἐς τὰς ναῦςas everything depended on the fleet. Cf. Eur. Hec. 802 ὃς εἰς σ᾽ ἀνελθὼν εἰ διαφθαρήσεται κ.τ.λ.

διὰ τὸ ἀνώμαλονas the fortune of the battle varied, so they received of necessity varying impressions. (Valla supposed that there is a reference in this passage to ‘the unevenness of the ground’; but this is not likely either from what follows or from the condition of the coast. Being close to the water, they could not get a view of the whole.)
