παρέβαλε: intransitive, ‘crossed over’; cf. Thuc. iii. 32 ad fin. H. writes as if the whole fleet had taken the course followed, in fact, by the vanguard (ch. 183) of ten ships. One of these vessels is declared to have been Sidonian (viii. 92), and they were the best sailors (vii. 96. 1).

ἔνθα: not close to the island but further north, on the line between Therma and Sciathos, opposite the mouth of the Peneius (ch. 182), unless indeed (Munro, J. H. S. xxii. 308; cf. Blakesley) the Phoenician squadron kept well outside Sciathos at first, and then approaching the channel between it and Magnesia from the south, drove the Greek look-out ships northwards.
