The headword is present middle participle, nominative singular masculine, of perilixma/w. It is presumably extracted from the quotation given and is otherwise unattested. The quotation given is unidentifiable.
The verbs for the actions described, including the headword itself and the participle ei)lou/menos ("wrapping himself") later in the quotation, are frequently used of animals; cf. lambda 632. If that is the case here, the appropriate translation of the end of the quotation might be "persuaded her to consider him a man."
