ὑπῆγον, ‘began to draw off.’ The verb is either trans. or intrans (as here). Cf. (i.) εἰς δυσχωρίαν ὑπάγειν τοὺς πολεμίους (Xen. Cyr. i. 6, 37); (ii.) ὑπομείναντες ἐπιφερόμενον καὶ, ὅταν καιρὸς , κόσμῳ καὶ τἁξει ὑπαγαγόντες (Thuc. iv. 126; cf. v. 10).

πέλαγος ‘the open sea,’ so πλεῖν πελάγιος frequently.

ἐπανεχώρησαν ‘withdrew to their station’ (ἐπι. ‘home’). Not as P-S, ‘retired after they had done so.’ The addition of other ships proves that they returned to port.

σφῶν not αὐτῶν, as if reflexive with ἐνόμιζον.
