Headword: Περιφώσαντες
Adler number: pi,1343
Translated headword: having sealed (?)
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they] having covered, having put a lid on. "Having collected a sufficiently large quantity of wild beasts they put them into fresh jars and, having sealed the jars, kept them ready for use".[1]
Greek Original:
Περιφώσαντες: σκεπάσαντες, πωμάσαντες. πλῆθος δὲ θηρίων ἀθροίσαντες ἱκανὸν ἐς χύτρας καινὰς ἐνέβαλλον καὶ περιφώσαντες αὐτὰς εἶχον ἐν ἑτοίμῳ πρὸς τὴν χρείαν.
Notes:
The headword participle is presumably extracted from the quotation given, but in the form transmitted here, περιφώσαντες , it is otherwise unattested. (Alternatives have been suggested, none of them very convincing.)
[1] Quotation unidentifiable (though as Adler notes, Tiberius Hemsterhuys [1685-1766] drew attention to a possible connection with Cornelius Nepos, Hannibal '5.2' [= 10.4-5], on H.'s preparations for a sea-battle in 184 BCE).
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history; military affairs; trade and manufacture; zoology
