Adler number: delta,956
Translated headword: we trivialized
Vetting Status: high
Meaning we destroyed.[1] For ska/rifon is twigs and sticks. And such things are easily destroyed and easily dissipated. So Isocrates [sc. uses the word].
[The verb] skarifh/sasqai is to do something perfunctorily and not with the appropriate accuracy.
Greek Original:

[1] Not really, as the rest of the entry goes on to show; but "we destroyed" is the second, associated verb in the original source, Isocrates 7.12 (web address 1).
