[Meaning a] colonnade having porches.
Greek Original:
Περίστῳον: περίστυλον στοὰς ἔχον.
Same entry in Photius (pi778 Theodoridis), similar in other lexica (and Pollux 1.77-78).
According to LSJ, the headword, a neuter noun, is later Greek for περίστυλον (the noun used in the present gloss). Moeris the Atticist says περιστῷον (sic: so accented) is Attic, while περίστυλον is common Greek (koine); but the earliest writers (outside lexicography) to use περίστῳον are Josephus and Cassius Dio.
