Headword: *parasxo/n
Adler number: pi,456
Translated headword: it having been possible
Vetting Status: high
A verb-adjunct.(?)[1] "But if at any rate -- it having been possible -- he became so manifestly [sc. someone] giving the impression of saying that he had come to speak about the ambassadors."[2]
Greek Original:
*parasxo/n: e)pi/rrhma. ei) de/ ge parasxo\n ou(/tw kata/dhlos ge/nhtai do/cai le/gein, w(s parage/gone le/cwn peri\ tw=n pre/sbewn.
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the aorist active participle, neuter (nominative, vocative, and) accusative singular, of the verb pare/xw (I hold, supply, yield, offer, submit). See generally LSJ s.v., esp. A.II.2 on this impersonal idiom (for which see already epsilon 3637).
[1] In grammatical parlance an e)pi/rrhma is usually an adverb (in the Suda passim; Dickey, p. 238), or sometimes an interjection (ibid., p. 127); cf. epsilon 2546 and LSJ s.v. e)pi/rrhma. Its import here is obscure. (Adler notes that ms V has e)pi/grafon instead.)
[2] The placement of the quotation is uncertain; however, it was associated by Bernhardy with Menander Protector fr. 66 FHG (4.268.b2), where the headword occurs. There the text describes how the Romans (in early 582 CE; Blockley, p. 286) ceded the city of Sirmium (Barrington Atlas map 21 grid B5; present-day Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia) to the Avars, with each inhabitant, having held onto just one cloak each, being allowed to evacuate (Blockley, pp. 240-1; Mitchell, p. 405).
