Headword: *problh=tas
Adler number: pi,2343
Translated headword: jutting out
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] built outwards for stability; but some [say it means] the first [posts] extending forward -- which is [a] preferable [interpretation].[1]
Stability indeed [is called] pro/blhma ["bulwark"]. "There was no bulwark in front of the encampment."[2]
Greek Original:

[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references at Photius pi1189 Theodoridis), as well as a scholion on Homer, Iliad 12.259 (web address 1); the Trojans are dismantling the Achaeans' fortifications. For a substantive use of the adjective problh/s (here, as glossed, in the feminine accusative plural), see pi 2344.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. The phrase pro\ th=s stratopedei/as occurs several time in Polybius and once in Plutarch. For other senses of pro/blhma, see pi 2340, pi 2341, pi 2342.
