[Meaning he] considering, figuring. Arrian [writes]: "Nearchos, observing that it was likely that the territory was under crop, says to Archidas [...] that they should take control of the village."[1]
Greek Original:
*)epifrasqei/s: e)nqumhqei/s, dialogisa/menos. *)arriano/s: o( de\ *ne/arxos e)pifrasqei/s, o(/ti spei/resqai th\n xw/ran ei)ko/s, le/gei pro\s *)arxi/dan, katalhpte/a sfi/sin ei)/h to\ xwri/on.
The headword is the aorist passive participle, masculine singular nominative, of e)pifra/zw, employed here in a middle sense. (The corresponding glossing participles are aorist passive and aorist middle.) It is probably extracted here from the quotation given, though there is an earlier instance in Herodotus 4.200.2 (and two in Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica).
[1] An abridgement of Arrian, Indica 27.8. The text of Arrian reads katalhpte/on ('should be taken under control') rather than katalhpte/a, but this produces little to no difference in translation. More important, 'Archidas' should be Archias (of Pella). For Nearchos see nu 117.
