Adler number: pi,373

[Used] with an accusative. Meaning [he/she/it] is deceiving. The word is derived from those who, when standing something up or measuring it, strike[1] and shake the measures, so as to make a profit.
Greek Original:
*parakrou/etai: ai)tiatikh=|. a)nti\ tou= e)capata=|. meth=ktai de\ tou)/noma a)po\ tou= tou\s i(sta/ntas ti h)\ metrou=ntas, krou/ein ta\ me/tra kai\ diasei/ein, e(/neka tou= pleonektei=n,
After the initial grammatical gloss, the entry is abridged from Harpokration s.v., who notes that the word is common in Attic oratory, especially Demosthenes 'in the Philippics'. The precise form parakrou/etai is unattested in the Philippics (even on the broad definition of that term), but in the private speeeches see Demosthenes 29.1 and 44.49; perhaps (as Theodoridis on Photius, Lexicon pi253 suggests) Harpok. had in mind 6.23, e)capathko/ta ... kai\ parakekroume/non.
cf. generally pi 374, pi 375, pi 376.
[1] krou/ein.
