ἐσάξαντο (cf. προεσάξαντο, i. 190, viii. 20): probably (Stein) from σάττεσθαι, ‘repaired,’ ‘strengthened,’ rather than (Schweig.) aorist middle from ἐσάγειν, in which case καί must be struck out. Both seem difficult here. Hence Dietsch, κατὰ τάχος ἐσάξαντο, ‘quickly laid up stores of food.’


τείχεα: forts like that on Mount Istone held by the Corcyrean nobles (Thuc. iii. 85, iv. 46).
