Headword: Διέπεσεν
Adler number: delta,935
Translated headword: collapsed, fell through
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[He/she/it] failed.[1]
“And the hope in Bithias collapsed in this fashion.”[2]
Greek Original:
Διέπεσεν: ἀπέτυχεν. καὶ ἡ μὲν κατὰ τὸν Βιθίαν ἐλπὶς τούτῳ τῷ τρόπῳ διέπεσεν.
Notes:
The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] For διαπίπτω in this sense cf. generally delta 691, delta 692.
[2] This quotation is conventionally assigned to a lost passage of Dio Cassius' Book 21 preserved in Zonaras' epitome. (See beta 283 for the role of Bithias in aiding Hasdrubal during the siege of Carthage in 147 BCE.) Latterly, however, Favuzzi [see under alpha 1596] finds vocabulary-based grounds for attributing to it Polybius.
