Headword: Παραλλάττουσιν
Adler number: pi,380
Translated headword: they bypass
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning they go by.[1] "Procopius[2] and the Emperor Valens[3] bypass one another, deceived by the distance between the roads."[4]
Greek Original:
Παραλλάττουσιν: ἀντὶ τοῦ παρέρχονται. παραλλάττουσι δὲ ἀλλήλους τῷ διαστήματι τῶν ὁδῶν ψευσθέντες ὅ τε Προκόπιος καὶ Οὐάλης ὁ βασιλεύς.
Notes:
Blockley, Eunapius fr. 34.[6]. Presumably extracted from the quotation given, the headword (with nu movable) is the present indicative active, third person plural form of the verb παραλλάσσω (I make to alternate); cf. pi 379, pi 620, and see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The gloss is the present indicative middle/passive, third person plural, of the verb παρέρχομαι (I pass over); see LSJ s.v.
[2] Beginning in the winter of 365 CE, Procopius (Jones, et al., pp. 742-743) led a rebellion in the east against Valens (cf. n.3).
[3] Roman emperor 364-378; OCD(4) s.v., omicron 764.
[4] As Adler notes, Bernhardy deemed the quotation a Eunapian fragment and linked it with Eunapius fr.32 FHG (4.26); cf. xi 108; Blockley, p. 51. Together with this passage, xi 108, epsilon 936 (so Bernhardy), and mu 1048 pertain to the closing episodes of Procopius' rebellion, suppressed by Valens in 366 (Blockley, p. 138); cf. mu 1056.
