Ἀνέφερον: ἀνεμιμνήσκοντο. ἀνέφερον τοὺς ἐπιτηδείους, ὅπου τις εἶεν. ἢ Ἀνέφερον, ἑαυτὸν ἀνεκτώμην. διὰ ταῦτα ῥᾴων ἦν, καὶ ἀνέφερον. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἤμην. καὶ αὖθις: διὰ δὲ τὸ βάρος τῶν ὅπλων ἐκ τῶν καταδυομένων ἀνέφερεν οὐδὲ εἷς.
Notes:
The headword is perhaps, though not demonstrably, extracted from the first quotation given.
