This entry -- absent (Adler reports) from mss FV -- seems to be an attempt to collect quotations that illustrate the previous entry on "countermarches" (epsilon 1616). The present headword is aorist active participle, masculine nominative plural, of e)celi/ssw, presumably extracted from the first of the quotations given follow.
[1] Quotation (drawn from alpha 410) unidentifiable. The participle e)celicantes has been translated here as "countermarching" since it seems to fit the context and since the creator of this entry seems to associate this quotation with the "countermarches" (e)celigmoi/) of epsilon 1616 (see previous note). The verb e)celi/ssw, however, can refer to other military manoeuvres. For an alternative translation see alpha 410.
[2] An excerpt from a longer quotation (also unidentifiable) at delta 546, where it is possible that the manoeuvres being described are cavalry manoeuvres. Hence the word e)celi/cis, though clearly related to the words translated above as "countermarching" (e)celi/cantes) and in epsilon 1616 as "countermarch" (e)celigmo/s) is here translated as "counter-charge". For an alternative translation see delta 546.
