Greek Original:
Ὑποτεμέσθαι: ἀφελέσθαι. Ξενοφῶν: ἢν ἐπ' ἐκείνους ἡμεῖς ἐλαύνωμεν, ὑποτεμοῦνται ἡμᾶς πάλιν ἐκεῖνοι: ἡμῖν δὲ οὔπω ἡ ἰσχὺς πάρεστιν.
[1] Likewise in the Synagoge and Photius' Lexicon. The headword, presumably quoted from somewhere, is aorist middle infinitive of the verb ὑποτέμνω (cf. upsilon 401, upsilon 606, upsilon 607, upsilon 608 and upsilon 609).
