Headword: *diabiasa/menos
Adler number: delta,513
Translated headword: having overcome by force
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he] having been excessively compelled.[1] Polybius [writes]: "and having overcome his weakness by force, by means of his earlier habits, he came from Argos [Myth, Place] to Megalopolis on the same day."[2]
Greek Original:

The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given (though it also occurs in Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 19.173).
[1] This glossing participle (which occurs only here and in the parallel entry in ps.-Zonaras) is aorist passive and thus an odd match with the aorist middle headword.
[2] Polybius 23.12.2, on Philopoemen (cf. beta 131, phi 409); text at web address 1.
