Headword: Parabalesthai
Adler number: pi,271
Translated headword: to have brought alongside
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to have brought to a stop, and to have been dismissed. The metaphor [comes] from those who row.
Greek Original:
Parabalesthai: to pausasthai, kai apallagênai. hê de metaphora apo tôn eressontôn.
The headword (also at pi 270 and pi 272), evidently quoted from somewhere, is the aorist middle infinitive of the verb paraba/llw (I throw beside); see LSJ s.v., and cf. omicron 284.
The headword is identically glossed in Photius, Lexicon pi191 Theodoridis. In nautical parlance (flagged up here), it means that a vessel has assumed a specified position--that rowing has ceased and it has "hove to"--typically with respect to another vessel. For this sense of the verb see LSJ s.v., III.3.
