Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] was holding out in front of.[1] "[He/she/it] was brandishing fear against them, as of one about to die immediately."[2]
Greek Original:
*)epe/seien: e)panetei/neto. toi=s d' e)pe/seie fo/bon, w(s au)ti/ka teqnh/contos.
[1] The headword is third person singular, imperfect, of e)pisei/w; presumably extracted from the quotation which follows (though it, as given, lacks the headword's nu ephelkustikon).
[2] Source unknown, although Callimachus has been suggested (anonymous fr.25 Schneider; not accepted by Pfeiffer), as has Babrius or a Babrian imitator (Crusius, p. 216, with reference to Babrius 75.4-6, wherein a physician wrongly prognosticates death for an ailing patient). The quotation is a dactylic hexameter.
