[Meaning] you enslave and you make subject. Or meaning you uproot. Sophocles [writes]: "you take what you want, and you impose yourself by force, and you think my city is is void of men or some slave-city."[1] They were accustomed to speak in this way; and to mean 'they put to flight' we would say 'they uprooted'; but they [would say] 'they imposed themselves'.[2]

The headword (extracted from the quotation given) is present indicative middle, second person singular, of pari/sthmi. For the primary sense of it illustrated here, see LSJ s.v., C.II.1 (web address 1: citing the present instance amongst others); but see further below.
For other forms of the same verb see pi 441 to pi 444, pi 447, pi 448, pi 658 and pi 659.

[2] This sense of the headword verb (already anticipated above) is not clearly attested elsewhere and may be an incorrect extrapolation from the Sophoclean context.
