Greek Original:
Περιπόλων: φυλάκων, ζητητῶν. τῶν δὲ περιπόλων τις περιθέων ἀποβάλλει χαλκῆν ἀσπίδα ὕπερθεν τοῦ ὀρύγματος. ἡ δὲ οὖσα μὲν πλατεῖα, ἀλλὰ κυρτή, οὐ στερεὸν ἐκτύπησεν, ἀλλὰ κοῖλον καὶ διάκοιλον. τάχα διάκενον.
Notes:
For this headword (here in the genitive plural, presumably extracted from the quotation given) see already pi 1259 and pi 1260, and again under tau 344.
