Notes:
The headword participle occurs here and elsewhere (see next note) in the nominative plural, but the ultimate source is evidently Thucydides 8.79.3, where it is accusative plural (web address 1).
The verb ναυμαχησείω is a desiderative formation from ναυμαχέω (nu 65).
[1] Likewise in Photius nu47 Theodoridis.
[2] These additions come from a marginal gloss in ms M.
