[Meaning] a prepared war.[1]
Greek Original:
*para/tacis: po/lemos e)mpara/skeuos.
The headword (which literally means a side-by-side positioning) is a feminine noun in the nominative singular; see LSJ s.v., pi 546 gloss, and Psalm 143.1 LXX, where it occurs in the accusative singular para/tacin.
[1] The gloss noun and the two-ending adjective are both masculine, in the nominative singular. The headword is similarly glossed in Anecdota Oxoniensia (Cramer) 2.464.14; and cf. Hesychius epsilon5045 ('in parataxis: in war').
