Translation:
Outflanking is [sc. the term used] when we outflank the enemy out of one part [= wing] only.

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.
Notes:
The spelling of this term is either ὑπερκέρασις or (as here, presumably from the Agathias passage) ὑπερκέρωσις .
cf. Asclepiodotus 10.18.
