Headword: *peri/stasin
Adler number: pi,1296
Translated headword: surrounding
Vetting Status: high
Dinarchus in [the] Etruscan [speech writes]: "after this, with Damon already at the way up,[1] they make a surrounding; this led to my being begged to give evidence, etc.".[2] Perhaps the expression means something like this: he himself and those present with him stood around [the speaker] in a circle and forced [him] to give evidence; so that it would have the same meaning as "they made [me] surrounded". But in some [copies] parastasis is written in place of peristasis.

For this headword noun see already pi 1295. Here it is accusative case, presumably extracted from the quotation given.
