The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given (see n. 2 below), is the present active participle, masculine nominative plural, of the otherwise unattested compound contract verb parastauro/w, I enclose by palisades; see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] In her critical apparatus, Adler notes that ms F reads paraba/sei: into the pathway.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable, though a variation has appeared already at epsilon 926. The Dutch scholar Tiberius Hemsterhuys (1685-1766) suggested a link with pi 2209, also unidentified.
