Greek Original:

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 αἰωρεω see alphaiota 264 and alphaiota 265. But NB: in the Herodotus passage this aorist passive participle (masculine nominative plural) is actually the compound ὑπεραιωρηθέντες (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).
