Adler number: pi,1217

[Meaning them] living.[1] Agathias [writes]: "and they said they would provide for him whatever he wished to use, if only they might see the hostages surviving."[2]
Greek Original:
Περιόντας: ζῶντας. Ἀγαθίας: καὶ ἔλεγον παρέξειν αὐτῷ ἐς ὅ τι βούλοιτο χρῆσθαι, εἴγε τοὺς ὁμήρους ἴδοιεν περιόντας.
[1] The headword is present participle, masculine accusative plural, of περίειμι (from εἰμί "I am"). It is presumably, though not demonstrably, extracted from the quotation given; cf. in any event pi 1145, pi 1147.
