Adler number: epsilon,3335
Translated headword: was being wasted
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] was being deferred, was being delayed. "With disagreements lasting so long, the attack was being wasted."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐτρίβετο: ὑπερετίθετο, ἀνεβάλλετο. μέχρι πολλοῦ διαφερομένων, ἐτρίβετο ἡ προσβολή.
Notes:
The headword is imperfect, third person singular, imperfect middle/passive, of τρίβω (cf. generally tau 947, tau 949). It is presumably extracted from the quotation given here.
[1] Quotation not identified by Adler, but a TLG search shows it to be Josephus, Jewish War 5.322 (web address 1). See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXIV.
