Adler number: upsilon,317
Translated headword: outflanking
Vetting Status: high
Outflanking is [sc. the term used] when we outflank the enemy out of one part [= wing] only.
"Furthermore, they were able to make neither sorties with the horses nor outflankings, [...] being cut off by the army".[1]
Greek Original:
Ὑπερκέρωσις: ὑπερκέρωσίς ἐστιν, ὅταν ἐκ τοῦ ἑτέρου μέρους μόνον ὑπερέχωμεν τῶν πολεμίων. ἀλλὰ γὰρ οὔτε ἐκδρομὰς τοῖς ἵπποις καὶ ὑπερκερώσεις ποιεῖσθαι ἐδύναντο, ὡς δὴ ἀπειλημμένοι τῷ στρατεύματι.
The spelling of this term is either ὑπερκέρασις or (as here, presumably from the Agathias passage) ὑπερκέρωσις .
cf. Asclepiodotus 10.18.
