Headword: *parakatei=xon
Adler number: pi,355
Translated headword: they were delaying, they were restraining
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they were wasting time.[1] "Having dealt deceitfully with the envoys they were delaying on the pretext of being about to assemble the people."[2]
Greek Original:
*parakatei=xon: e)xronotri/boun. oi( de\ doli/ws toi=s pre/sbesi prosenegka/menoi parakatei=xon w(s suna/contes to\n dh=mon.
[1] The headword is imperfect of parakate/xw, third person plural. It is presumably extracted from the quotation given, though there are also two instances in Polybius (1.66.5, 23.9.14).
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
