Headword: Ἀπολαβόντες
Adler number: alpha,3375
Translated headword: having intercepted
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they] having cut off. "Having intercepted the army in the narrow and inaccessible groves they compelled them to come into shameful treaties."[1]
And Josephus [writes]: "having pursued the enemy they intercept them in a ravine and kill them all."[2]
And elsewhere: "for the place was pleasing to both sides, to the one because it was where they had intercepted the Romans and released them under the terms of a treaty, [and hence the place served] as a sign of what services had been done."[3]
Greek Original:
Ἀπολαβόντες: ἐναποκλείσαντες. οἱ δὲ τὴν στρατιὰν αὐλῶσι στενοῖς καὶ δυσεμβόλοις ἀπολαβόντες ἐς διαλλαγὰς ἐλθεῖν αἰσχρὰς ἠνάγκασαν. καὶ Ἰώσηπος: διώξαντες ἀπολαμβάνουσι τοὺς πολεμίους ἐν κοίλῳ χωρίῳ καὶ πάντας κτείνουσι. καὶ αὖθις: τὸ γὰρ χωρίον ἀμφοτέροις ἤρεσε, τῷ μὲν ὅτι ἀπολαβόντες ἐς αὐτὸ τοὺς Ῥωμαίους ὑποσπόνδους ἀφῆκαν, πρὸς ἔνδειξιν ὧν εὐεργέτηντο.
Notes:
The headword participle is perhaps (though not demonstrably) extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
[2] Adler queried this attribution, but C. Theodoridis in his Photius edition (vol.II p.LXXXVIII) identifies the passage in question as an approximation of Antiquities of the Jews 5.227.
[3] Cassius Dio 62.23.
