Adler number: kappa,1032

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] constrained, encircled. "When he saw himself overtaken by the dangers, he wrote songs."[1]
Greek Original:
Κατειλημμένον: κατεχόμενον, κυκλωθέντα. ὡς ἑώρα ἑαυτὸν τοῖς κινδύνοις κατειλημμένον, γράφει ᾠδάς.
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the perfect middle/passive participle (masculine accusative singular) of καταλαμβάνω .
[1] Quotation unidentifiable -- but the individual described, Adler confidently asserts, is the emperor Nero (nu 254). One could compare generally Suetonius, Nero 40.
