Headword: *paralu/sas
Adler number: pi,394
Translated headword: having released
Vetting Status: high
Meaning having taken [someone's] place.[1] "Having removed him from office/power."[2]
Greek Original:
*paralu/sas: a)nti\ tou= diadeca/menos. paralu/sas au)to\n th=s a)rxh=s.
cf. pi 395.
[1] Aorist active participle (masculine nominative singular) of paralu/w, presumably from the quotation which follows.
[2] The only attestation of this phrase is in John Chrysostom, Homilies on Genesis (PG 54, 593.59), and Favuzzi [cited under alpha 1990] is satisfied that that is the source. However, as the usage is common enough, the Suda's source may be some lost text, transmitted through the Excerpts made for Constantine Porphyrogenitus.
