"There were mountains full of all kinds of wild beasts; moving through [the mountains] in circles the soldiers killed many of the beasts."
Greek Original:
Ὀργμεύοντες: ἦσαν δὲ ὄρη παντοίων θηρίων ἀνάπλεα, ἃ κατὰ κύκλους ὀργμεύοντες οἱ στρατιῶται πολλὰ τῶν θηρίων ᾕρουν.
Küster emended the headword participle (masculine nominative plural) to ὀγμεύοντες both times (cf. ὄγμος at omicron 26), but Adler notes that Hemsterhuys defended the manuscript reading, comparing Hesychius omicron1378 s.v. ὀρχμαί .
The ultimate source of the quotation is unknown, but it was transmitted via the excerpts made for Constantine Porphyrogenitus.
