[A phrase that means someone] doing something by making the rounds, among Romans.
Greek Original:
*)ec a)mbiti/wnos: e)k peridromh=s ti pra/ttwn para\ *(rwmai/ois.
The headword is a prepositional phrase which includes, transliterated, the Latin noun ambitio (referring to campaigning for political office); the gloss equates it with the Greek noun peridrome. Adler reports an identical entry in the unpublished Lexicon codicis Barocciani 50. (Hesychius has an entry for a)mbitiw=n (alpha3502), interpreted as a participle.)
The TLG finds an instance in the Acts of the Council of Ephesus (A.D. 431).
