Headword: Ἐπέστησε
Adler number: epsilon,2087
Translated headword: stood over

[Used] with a genitive.[1] "[He] suddenly stood over the road."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπέστησε: γενικῇ. ἐπέστησεν ἐξαίφνης τοῦ δρόμου.
[1] The headword is aorist indicative active of ἐφίστημι (cf. epsilon 2623, epsilon 3933, epsilon 3934), third person singular. It is probably extracted from the quotation given, which does illustrate the relevant usage, though there is no nu-moveable in the headword itself.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler, but TLG searching reveals it to be Cassius Dio 17.57.78 (contextless). (Could also mean "he suddenly stopped the race.")
