It may theu have been at Doriskos that the full tripartition, or rather the tripli-cation, of the land forces was effected; and from that point to Akanthos the army may have marched, on three ap-proximately parallel routes--left, middle, and right--by coast-line, inland and between, the fleet remaining in touch at least with the left column.
