[Meaning] to take away from.[1] "Wanting to give his own soldiers a rest and to release them from toil [...]."[2]

[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the first quotation given, is aorist active infinitive of paralu/w; cf. pi 394.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpts made for Constantine Porphyrogenitus) unidentifiable.
[3] De Boor (below) doubted that this quotation -- again transmitted, in Adler's view, from the Excerpta -- was from Theophylact Simocatta; and it too is unidentifiable via the TLG.
