GJCaesar wrote:ὑπ᾽ ἀλλήλων goes with ἀντισπωμένης δὲ τῆς ἑκάστου δυνάμεως. μηδαμοῦ is not a genitive, but a proverb, meaning ''nowhere''. In this sense, I believe it means that ''in no case/on no place''.
μηδαμοῦ does carry the special meaning you've mentioned, which seems a more apt translation
in this passage, but strictly speaking, it's genitive.
