"But when they[A] passed by the ambush, suddenly they[B] all appeared."[1] Meaning they arrived.[2]
Greek Original:
Παρήλλαξαν: ἐπειδὴ δὲ παρήλλαξαν τὴν ἐνέδραν, ἄφνω πάντες ἐπεφάνησαν. ἀντὶ τοῦ παρῆλθον.
For the verb παραλλάσσω cf. pi 380.
[1] The quotation, unidentifiable as it stands, is surely a paraphrase of Xenophon, Hellenica 5.1.12: ἐπεὶ δὲ παρήλλαξαν οἱ πρῶτοι τὴν ἐνέδραν, ἐξανίστανται οἱ περὶ τὸν Χαβρίαν καὶ εὐθὺς ἠκόντιζον καὶ ἔβαλλον ("But when the first [of Gorgopas' troops] had passed by the ambush, Chabrias' men broke cover and immediately began hurling javelins and throwing [stones]").
[2] This appears to be glossing ἐπεφάνησαν , not the headword itself.
