Headword: Περιφώσαντες
Adler number: pi,1343
Translated headword: having sealed (?)
Vetting Status: high
[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.
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
