From an ancient gloss on Herodotus 6.116.1, a passage where the Persian war-fleet in 490 BCE temporarily halts off Phaleron, at that time Athens' naval harbor. For this headword and gloss cf. generally epsilon 1899, epsilon 1900; and for other forms of the verb ai)wrew see alphaiota 264 and alphaiota 265. But NB: in the Herodotus passage this aorist passive participle (masculine nominative plural) is actually the compound u(peraiwrhqe/ntes (web address 1), which, more than the simple verb, does have the nautical sense required here (heave to, lie off: see LSJ s.v., 3).
