[2] Quotation unidentifiable in this form, but perhaps [WH] a loose paraphrase or summary of Arrian, Anabasis 2.17.4 (Alexander the Great tells his troops at Tyre in 332 BCE that, once Egypt has been invaded and captured, the Persians will be cut off from 'all the Persians' sea and all the land on this side of the Euphrates', th\n e)pi\ ta/de tou= *Eufra/tou gh=n). In any event, both Polybios and Arrian are fond of using the headword as a geographical descriptor.
