Greek Original:
Ἐντρεπομένους: αἰτιατικῇ. ἐγκλίνοντας. οἱ δὲ Λίβυες θεωροῦντες τοὺς Ἴβηρας ἐντρεπομένους καὶ δεδιότες μὴ λάθωσιν ἐγκαταλειφθέντες, ὥρμησαν ἐπὶ τὸ παραπλήσιον.
[1] ἐντρέπομαι is construed with the accusative (cf. epsilon 1486 for the active ἐντρέπω ) in the sense of 'feel regard for' or 'feel ashamed for', but not in the sense suggested by either the subsequent gloss here, ἐγκλίνοντας , or the usage of the word in the quotation that follows (where it is not construed with the accusative).
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Attributed by Kuster to Polybius or Appian.)
