[47] When they had reached the villages, Seuthes with about thirty horsemen rode up to him and said: “Here's the very thing, Xenophon, that you were saying;1 these fellows are caught, but unhappily my horsemen have gone off unsupported, scattering in their pursuit, and I fear that the enemy may get together somewhere in a body and work some harm. On the other hand, some of us also must remain in the villages, for they are full of people.”

1 See 37, 38 above. Seuthes has again (cp. 41) gone ahead with his fastest arm (his cavalry), and now appreciates the danger of having them unsupported (cp. ἔρημοι below) by infantry.
