Headword: Ἐσπαρμένη παράταξις
Adler number: epsilon,3180
Translated headword: scattered formation
Vetting Status: high
[sc. This occurs] whenever it is broken up into several masses of things.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐσπαρμένη παράταξις: ὅταν εἰς ὄγκους πλείονας διαλύηται τῶν πραγμάτων.
The same definition is given to the term ἐσπαρμένη ("scattered") alone at #64 in the tactical glossary that follows the letter psi. Adler cites Tact. 59 Köchly and Rostow. (No such term is treated by the mainstream tactical writers: Asclepiodotus, Arrian, Aelian.)
[1] The tactical glossary following the letter psi reads, more cogently, ταγμάτων ('of formations') in place of πραγμάτων , rendering the phrase as "...several masses of formations."
