Headword: Ὑπερφαλαγγίωσις
Adler number: upsilon,381
Translated headword: double-outflanking
Vetting Status: high
Double-outflanking is when we extend beyond the enemy from both parts of the phalanx.
Greek Original:
Ὑπερφαλαγγίωσις: ὑπερφαλαγγίωσίς ἐστιν, ὅταν ἐξ ἑκατέρων τῶν μερῶν τῆς φάλαγγος ὑπερέχωμεν τῶν πολεμίων.
The particular form of this noun occurs only here; more usually it is ὑπερφαλάγγησις (and the C19 military historians Koechly & Ruestow suggested emending to that here). In the Tactica section appended to the Suda, it is spelled ὑπερφαλάγγισις .
For an instance of the cognate verb, see Xenophon, Cyropaedia 6.3.20.
