[Meaning] they came to blows. "The armies met in a war [= battle] such as never yet had broken out, around [sc. the time of] the crowded agora; and certain discharges of weapons from the light-armed troops occurred and missiles came forth and a shield [sic] resounded."[1]

Adler reports the same lemma in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is (intransitive) pluperfect, third person singular, of surrh/gnumi, literally 'it had dashed together'. For this with polemos cf. sigma 1502 (and another instance in Cassius Dio 38.47.7).
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable, but evidently from post-classical historiography. For the time of day when a city's agora was crowded cf. pi 1255, pi 1745.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history; military affairs
