Headword: Ὑπερισθμίσας
Adler number: upsilon,299
Translated headword: having drawn over the isthmus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he] having crossed the isthmus. "Having swiftly drawn the keletes and the hemioliae over the isthmus, he set sail in a hurry to catch the assembly of the Achaeans."[1]
Greek Original:
Ὑπερισθμίσας: τὸν ἰσθμὸν περάσας. ταχὺ δὲ τοὺς κέλητας καὶ τὰς ἡμιολίας ὑπερισθμίσας ἀνήχθη, σπεύδων καταλαβεῖν τὴν τῶν Ἀχαιῶν σύνοδον.
Notes:
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the aorist active participle of ὑπερισθμίζω (untranslatable into English as a single word), masculine nominative singular. For a similar compound verb, see delta 1047 and delta 1048.
[1] Polybius fr. 162 Büttner-Wobst (quoted already at eta 342; cf. scholarly commentary on this fragment in the notes thereto). The keles and the hemiolia are types of ships. The isthmus in question is likely to be either the isthmus of Corinth (Barrington Atlas map 58 grid D2) or the one connecting the island of Leukas (Leucas, Barrington Atlas map 54 grid C4) to the NW Greek mainland.
