Headword: *peristefanwsa/ntwn
Adler number: pi,1305
Translated headword: having crowned around
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning they] having encircled. "Having crowned around the wall (?)with the masses(?)".[1]
Greek Original:
*peristefanwsa/ntwn: kuklwsa/ntwn. peristefanwsa/ntwn toi=s o)/xlois to\ tei=xos.
The headword is aorist active participle, masculine genitive plural, of the verb peristefano/w, presumably extracted from the quotation given. (For its several senses, see LSJ s.v.)
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. Adler notes the textual discrepancy between o)/xlois (mss AF) and o(/plois (mss GVM); she might have done better to print the latter.
