The headword -- aorist active participle of kataspeu/dw, masculine accusative singular -- is evidently extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable. (According to Adler it was attributed by de Boor to John of Antioch. If this were correct, it would exclude the possibility that this Euphemios is the (arguably) most obvious bearer of that name: the E. who proclaimed himself king of Sicily, in defiance of Byzantine rule, in the first quarter of the ninth century. Not accepted as a fr. of John by Roberto. For another possibility, see pi 2811 note 2.)
