Headword: *(upotemno/menos to\n plou=n
Adler number: upsilon,607
Translated headword: cutting off the voyage
Vetting Status: high
Meaning [he] sailing by the shortest route, in order to apprehend the fugitive.[1] So says Xenophon.[2]
Greek Original:
*(upotemno/menos to\n plou=n: a)nti\ tou= dia\ tw=n suntomwta/twn ple/wn, i(/na katala/bh| to\n diwko/menon. ou(/tw *cenofw=n fhsin.
[1] Same glossing in Photius and other lexica. The headword phrase contains the present middle participle, masculine nominative singular, of u(pote/mnw (cf. upsilon 606, upsilon 608, etc.). See further, next note.
[2] In Xenophon, Cyropaedia 1.4.19, according to Adler -- but that passage contains only the future, third person plural, u(potemou=ntai (of a cavalry manoeuvre). Perhaps Adler's reference is simply a mistaken repetition of the one given under upsilon 605. In any event, for the headword phrase as a whole, see rather Xenophon Hellenica 1.6.15: "cutting off the voyage into Samos" (web address 1).
