Adler number: pi,1099
Translated headword: they are whirling around
Vetting Status: high
[Meraning] they are traveling around, they are turning around.[1]
"But he, having whirled his horse around suddenly to the front, was confronting the cowardly."[2]
Greek Original:

[1] cf. the Synagoge and Photius, Lexicon pi661 Theodoridis, which separately supply the two glosses given here. The headword -- present indicative middle, third person plural, of peridine/w -- is evidently extracted from somewhere, but not from the quotation given, where we find an aorist active participle of the same verb.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
