[350] θῖν̓ ἔφ̓ ἁλός: i.e. “ἐπὶ θῖνα κτλ”., with “ἕζετο”.

ἔφ̓ is accented, in spite of the elision, in order to prevent ambiguity (§ 37 c “β”).

ἁλός: “ἅλς” and “θάλασσα” are the general words for sea; “πόντος”, the high, deep sea (often with reference to a particular tract, cf. 2.145); “πέλαγος”, the open sea.
