διὰ τοιαύτης δὴ παρασκευῆς ‘after only this amount of preparation.’

ὑπὲρ τοῦ λιμένος ‘in front of the harbour.’ ὑπὲρ implying that they moved out, and, in the Greek idea, up, only so far. Cf. i. 112, πλεύσαντες ὑπὲρ Σαλαμῖνος . . . ἐναυμάχησαν; i. 137, ἀποσαλεύσας ὑπὲρ τοῦ στρατοπέδου. Putting out to sea is to go upwards, ἀνάγεσθαι, μετέωρος γίγνεσθαι )( κατάγεσθαι.
