The verb means literally to sail down from the sea to the shore. Compare launched forth, Luke 8:22. Only here in New Testament. The two prepositions, up and down, are used in our nautical terms bear up and bear down. See Introduction, on Luke's variety of words for sailing. Matthew and Mark have came (ἐλθόντος, ἦλθον).

Gerasenes

The texts vary, some reading Gadarenes, as A. V., others Gergesenes.

Over against (ἀντιπέρα)

Only here in New Testament.
