Headword: *periei=nai
Adler number: pi,1146
Translated headword: to survive
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to remain in existence.[1] "[He] seeing that the city would not be able to survive otherwise than by famine."[2]
Greek Original:
*periei=nai: perigene/sqai. i)dw\n o(/ti ou)k a)/llws th\n po/lin h)\ limw=| periei=nai du/naito.
[1] cf. pi 1130, pi 1133, pi 1145, pi 1147.
[2] Perhaps rather, "Seeing that he would not be able to overcome the city otherwise than by famine" (interpreting periei=nai as nika=n, cf. pi 1147). Either way, the quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) is unidentifiable.
