Headword: Καταλύσας
Adler number: kappa,636
Translated headword: having released
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he] having overturned, having destroyed, or having been entertained well. It is applied also in reference to the bringing down of one who has been hanged; for properly one should not say κατενεγκεῖν ["bringing down"] of him, but καταλῦσαι ["releasing"].
Greek Original:
Καταλύσας: καταστρέψας, ἀφανίσας, ἢ εὐωχηθείς. τάττεται δὲ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς τοῦ ἀπαγξαμένου κατενέξεως. οὐ γὰρ δεῖ λέγειν κυρίως κατενεγκεῖν ἐπ' αὐτοῦ, ἀλλὰ καταλῦσαι.
Same or similar entry in other lexica. The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere) is aorist active participle of καταλύω , masculine nominative singular.
