Greek display:    

Headword: *periskuti/zontos
Adler number: pi,1287
Translated headword: scalping (in Scythian fashion)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning someone/something] skinning.
Greek Original:
*periskuti/zontos: e)kdermati/zontos.
Likewise in the Synagoge and Photius pi757 Theodoridis. The headword as transmitted is present participle, masculine or neuter genitive singular, of periskuti/zw, presumably a variant of periskuqi/zw (see pi 1286). Adler notes that 'H.Stephanus' (Henri √Čtienne) emended to periskuqi/zontos; that violates strict alphabetical order, but Theodoridis nevertheless deems it correct. With either spelling, the source is unidentifiable.
