Headword: Περιστεῖλαι
Adler number: pi,1303
Translated headword: to wrap
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to cover.[1]
"Wrapping this man's body with silken cloths and constructing a monument, he laid him in it."[2]
"[To rectify] whatever faults those who are born happen to commit, to wrap and keep [them] under control."[3] Meaning to conceal [them].
Greek Original:
Περιστεῖλαι: περικαλύψαι. ὁ δὲ τὸ σῶμα τούτου περιστείλας πέπλοις σηρικοῖς καὶ τεκτηνάμενος σῆμα ἐν αὐτῷ κατέθετο. ὅσα ἡμαρτῆσθαι τοῖς γειναμένοις ξυμβαίνει, περιστέλλειν τε καὶ κρατύνεσθαι. ἀντὶ τοῦ περικαλύπτειν.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword, presumably quoted from somewhere (but not from either of the quotations given here), is aorist active infinitive of περιστέλλω (pi 1298); see also pi 1304.
[2] Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 37 Habrich.
[3] Quotation not identified by Adler, but identifiable via the TLG as an approximation of Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 8.24.19; cf. Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus, de legationibus 119.29 de Boor. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.XCIV.
