[7] Προγένοντο . . . ἐΠί: Gemoll suggests “ἐνί”, understanding the verb to mean “hove in sight.” But “προγίγνεσθαι” often implies movement, “come forward,” and is followed by “ἐς” or “ἐπί”; cf. Il. 18.525 οἱ δὲ τάχα προγένοντο”, “came on,” Scut. 345 “τοὶ δ᾽ ἄμυδις προγένοντ̓”, of warriors rushing to meet one another, Callim. h. Art. 178κόπρον ἔπι προγένοιντο”, Theocr. xxv. 134προγενοίατο θῆρες ἐς πεδίον”.
