[1] = Synagoge; Photius, Lexicon pi660 Theodoridis. The headword is the Attic dialect version of the present middle infinitive of peridra/ssomai. Theodoridis regards it as quoted from either Cyril of Alexandria (Commentary on John 3.4: PG 73.449d) or Gregory of Nazianzus (Poems PG 37.598a).
[2] This seems to be an otherwise unattested present indicative active, first person singular, of peridra/ssomai. (No other active forms of this verb are attested.) The middle voice too can take the genitive: see LSJ s.v.
