καὶ ἐπειδὴ ἐγένοντο—the object of the A. before the last battle had been to reach Catana. Holm and Lupus think that they had given up all hope of reaching it. The alternative to Catana was some friendly town, west or south Freeman and Grote think that, as long as they were trying to reach the Acraean rock (see c. 80), they still hoped to get to Catana, though of course by an indirect route. The Acraean rock is due west of Syr.

τῇ διαβάσει—i.e. where the regular route crossed the river.

ἐς τὸ πρόσθεν—np the ascent that leads to Floridia. They were now following the modern road.
