ἔτι πολλῆς νυκτὸς i.e. ‘while there was still much of the night left,’ or ‘while the night was still deep,’ ‘long before dawn,’ = multa nocte. Cf. Polyb. v. 8, 3, πολλῆς ὤρας.

ἐς Ἁρματοῦντα Though not otherwise known, the place was evidently ‘directly opposite Methymna,’ and must have been about fifty miles sailing from Arginusae.

Λεκτὸν (neut.), the S. W. promontory of Troas and end of the Ida range.

Ἁμαξιτὸν The atlases (after Strabo, xiii. 1, § 47) place this town south of Larisa. But Xenophon (Hell. iii. 1, 13) has the same order as Thucydides, πόλεις προσέλαβεν ἐπιθαλαττιδίας Λάρισάν τε καὶ Ἁμαξιτὸν καὶ Κολωνάς, and their authority should perhaps be preferred.

Ῥοίτειον some seven miles up the Hellespont from Sigeum. As Classen points out, ἤδη belongs to τοῦ Ἐλλησπόντου.
