[Meaning] pure.
Greek Original:
*peri/esi: kaqara/.
= Photius pi677 Theodoridis, the only other attestation of this headword. The Synagoge offers the alternative pe/risi, likewise unattested elsewhere. Perhaps [WH] a misspelling (and misunderstanding) of the word peri/essi ("you surpass") at Homer, Odyssey 18.248, where the phrase peri/essi gunaikw=n (used by Eurymachus to, and about, Penelope) may have been taken to mean "pure among women", rather than "you surpass women".
Theodoridis (above) obelizes both the headword and the glossing word, as transmitted, and supports Toup's suggestion that the first should be peri/stia and the second kaqa/rsia; cf. under pi 1306.
