Headword: Περιρρῶγος
Adler number: pi,1277
Translated headword: rugged
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"When they had arrived near the river, upon a certain precipitous and rugged hill they began to build a fortress, appropriate for such an army to defend, for guarding their frontier."[1]
Greek Original:
Περιρρῶγος: ἐπὶ ὄχθου τινὸς ἀποτόμου καὶ περιρρῶγος ἐπετείχιζον αὐτοῖς φρούριον, ἱκανὸν φυλάττεσθαι τοσαύτῃ στρατιᾷ.
Notes:
The unglossed headword, evidently extracted from the following quotation, is a two-ending adjective in the masculine genitive singular; see LSJ s.v. περιρρώξ .
[1] The quotation, partly appearing already at omicron 1050, is adapted from Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 9.15.4. This garrison on a craggy hilltop near the Cremera River (Barrington Atlas map 43 grid B2) was built in 479 BCE by Marcus Fabius Vibulanus (consul 483 and 480, d. 477) and his brother Kaeso Fabius Vibulanus (consul 484, 481, and 479; d. 477; cf. mu 690 n. 2) as part of the Fabian clan's military campaign against the nearby Etruscan city of Veii (in the present-day community of Isola Farnese, Rome; Barrington Atlas map 43 grid B1); Smith, p. 934.
