"[...] and meanwhile intense thunder crashed and torrential rain falling from the sky made the barbarians' bowstrings lax."[1]
Greek Original:
*sklhra\ bronth/: kai\ e)n tou/tw| bronta/s te sklhra\s ktupei=n kai\ u(/dwr labro\n e)c ou)ranou= e)mpi/pton xala/sai toi=s barba/rois ta\s neura/s.
The unglossed headword phrase is not independently attested in the nominative form given here, though it appears frequently in other cases and numbers. (In the quotation given it is in the accusative plural, with the order of the two words reversed.)
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable, but part of the same passage, with less at the beginning but more at the end, also appears in chi 8. The verbs in the quotation are infinitives, meaning that in the original context the statement was probably indirect discourse (e.g. 'someone also said that meanwhile ...' ).
