Ἡμμένοι: συνημμένοι. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀνηρτημένοι. οἱ δὲ καταρράκται, οὓς εἶχον ὀλίγον ἐξωτέρω διὰ μηχανημάτων ἀνημμένους, αἰφνίδιον καθῆκαν καὶ ἐπεβάλοντο. καὶ τούτους κατασχόντες πρὸ τοῦ τείχους ἀνεσκολόπισαν.
[1] The headword is perfect middle/passive participle of ἅπτω , masculine nominative plural; cf. eta 293. Similar entry in Hesychius. The headword must be quoted from somewhere (other than the quotation given here, which uses ἀνημμένους from the compound verb ἀνάπτω ; cf. alpha 2037).
[2] Polybius 10.33.8 (a stray extract from Hannibal's attempt to capture Salapia in 208 BCE).
