Headword: Ἐμβάλλουσι
Adler number: epsilon,936
Translated headword: they make inroads
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] they commence hostilities, they depart. "They make inroads, the emperor into Lydia but Procopius into upper Phrygia".[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐμβάλλουσι: καταντῶσιν, ἀπέρχονται. ἐμβάλλουσι δὲ ὁ μὲν βασιλεὺς ἐς Λυδίαν ὁ δὲ Προκόπιος ἐς Φρυγίαν τὴν ἄνω.
Notes:
The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given. For this verb cf. epsilon 934, epsilon 935.
[1] Bernhardy attributed this quotation to Eunapius (Blockley, Eunapius fr. 34.[7]). Be that as it may, it seems to relate to the events of 366 CE, when Valens (omicron 764) was moving against the eastern usurper Procopius.
