The headword is the future active infinitive of die/xw: see LSJ s.v., I, on the idiom die/xein ta\s xei/ras, of separating combatants etc., in (e.g.) Polybius 4.52.1.
[1] Perhaps u(pere/cein, "to hold over", was intended; cf. LSJ s.v. u(pa/rxw, C.II, where this confusion is suggested for other contexts. Alternatively [DW], as in the Suda, a)pei/rcein, "to ward off."
[2] Polybius fr. 127 Büttner-Wobst. Büttner-Wobst notes (p. 531) that this fragment was ascribed to Polybius by Valesius (Henri de Valois 1603-1676).
