Θουκυδίδης: τούς τε φεύγοντας ἐκέλευον κατ' ἐπήρειαν δέχεσθαι αὐτούς. καὶ αὖθις: καὶ παρήγγειλε παραφυλάσσειν, μὴ ἄρα πού τις ἀπὸ τῆς ἄλλης στρατιᾶς ἐνὼν ἐπηρεάζοι αὐτοῖς. ἀντὶ τοῦ βλάπτοι. καὶ αὖθις: ὥστε ἡ ἐς ταῦτα ἐπήρεια εἰκότως ἂν ἀδίκημα μέγα εἰς τοὺς ἀνθρώπους τοῦ παντὸς αἰῶνος δόξειεν εἶναι. κυρίως δὲ Ἐπήρεια, ἡ τοῦ πολέμου καταδρομή. ἐκ τοῦ Ἄρης, Ἄρεως.
