Ἀπερείδομαι τὸν πόκον: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀποτίθημι, ἀκουμβίζω. καὶ Ἀπερείσασθαι, ἐκβαλεῖν, ἐκκενῶσαι. ὥσπερ εἰς ἐκείνους βουλόμενοι ἀπερείσασθαι τὸν θυμόν. καὶ Ἰώσηπος: πρὸς τὸν αἴτιον ἀπερείδεσθαι ἔλεγε τὴν ὀργήν. Ἀπερείσασθαι οὖν ἐκκενῶσαι, καταθαρρῆσαι, ἐπιβῆναι. πρὸς ἕνα καιρὸν ἀπερείσασθαι τὰς ἐλπίδας οὐδαμῶς ἔκρινε συμφέρειν.
