Headword: Περίστασιν
Adler number: pi,1296
Translated headword: surrounding
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Dinarchus in [the] Etruscan [speech writes]: "after this, with Damon already at the way up,[1] they make a surrounding; this led to my being begged to give evidence, etc.".[2] Perhaps the expression means something like this: he himself and those present with him stood around [the speaker] in a circle and forced [him] to give evidence; so that it would have the same meaning as "they made [me] surrounded". But in some [copies] parastasis is written in place of peristasis.
Greek Original:
Περίστασιν: Δείναρχος Τυρρηνικῷ: μετὰ ταῦτα τοῦ Δάμωνος ἤδη περὶ ἀγωγὴν ὄντος, περίστασιν ποιήσουσιν: οὗ καὶ μαρτυρεῖν ἀξιοῦντος, καὶ τὰ ἑξῆς. μήποτε τοιοῦτόν ἐστι τὸ λεγόμενον, ἐν κύκλῳ περιέστη μὲν αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ συμπαρόντες αὐτῷ, καὶ μαρτυρεῖν ἠνάγκαζον: ἵνα τὴν αὐτὴν ἔννοιαν ἔχῃ τό, περίστατον μετεποίησαν. ἐνίοις δὲ παράστασιν ἀντὶ τοῦ περίστασιν γράφεται.
Notes:
From Harpokration s.v.; cf. Photius s.v. All three versions show textual variation from each other.
For this headword noun see already pi 1295. Here it is accusative case, presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Reading ἀναγωγὴν , with Harpok.; the Suda mss have ἀγωγὴν .
[2] Dinarchus fr. XII.5 Conomis.
