Greek Original:
Προσκρούειν: δοτικῇ. ἐναντιοῦσθαι, ἐκμηχανᾶσθαι. οἱ Σικελιῶται τὸν στόλον ἰδόντες οὐκ ἐν τοῖς ὀχυρώμασι καθεῖρξαν αὑτούς, οὐκ ἄλλο προσκρούειν τοῖς ἐναντίοις οὐδὲν ἔγνωσαν.
The headword -- presumably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotation given -- is present active infinitive of προσκρούω (literally, 'bash against'). For another form of the same verb see already pi 2723; and cf. the glossing noun at pi 2739.
