κενός: empty-handed.

στρώματα: bedding

ἀπήλλαχεν ἐκ: come off from (i.e. stand) the trip.

ἂν διατεθῆναι: would have fared.

τοῦ παιδός: the slave. Cf. the old Eng. use of ‘knave’ (Ger. Knabe) equivalent to ‘servant,’ and the former use of the word ‘boy’ for ‘slave’ in our Southern States. Slaves were excluded from the exercises of the palaestra, and hence were οὐκ ἠσκημένοι.
