Ἀπηρείσατο: ἠκούμβισεν. ἀπετινάξατο, ἔπηξεν, ἀπέθετο. Πολύβιος: ὁ δὲ ἀπορῶν τοῖς ὅλοις πέρας ἐπί τινα τοιαύτην ἐλπίδα κατὰ τὸ παρὸν ἀπηρείσατο τὴν ἐνεστῶσαν ἀπορίαν. Ἀπηρίσατο δέ. δοτικῇ. διὰ τοῦ ι. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐφιλονείκησεν.
[1] The headword has the same or similar glossing (and NB the further glosses which follow) in other lexica. It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps the Polybius passage quoted, though there are other possibilities. (This first glossing verb, ἀκουμβίζω , comes from Latin accumbo. See already alpha 3039, and again epsilon 2949 and eta 499.)
[2] Polybius fr. 14 Büttner-Wobst.
[3] From ἔρις , "strife"; attested only here.
