Vetting Status: high

Greek Original:
Ἀπεῖχε: πόρρω ἦν. ὅσον δὴ ἀπεῖχε τοῦ ἐκπεπλῆχθαι βασιλέα τε καὶ ὄγκον, ἐδήλου τῷ μηδὲ ὀφθαλμῶν ἄξια ἡγεῖσθαι τὰ τοιαῦτα.
Notes:
The headword verb is perhaps extracted from the quotation given, but there are numerous alternatives.
[1] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 1.30. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.XCVII.
