Headword: Parebalen
Adler number: pi,512
Translated headword: handed over, approached
Vetting Status: high

Greek Original:
Parebalen: echthrous kai allotrious eirgasato. ho de parebale tous anthrôpous tois ochlois, hôste meta pasês hubreôs sullêphthentas anadechthênai dedemenous. hoion parebale tis tôn gerontôn.
Notes:
The headword -- aorist indicative active, third person singular, of paraba/llw -- is capable of a wide range of meanings, two distinct ones of which are illustrated in the two quotations. The initial gloss does not seem to fit with either of the two usages illustrated, or even with attested usages of the verb on its own; something may be missing.
For other forms of the same verb see pi 513 and pi 514.
[1] An appoximation of Polybius 38.17.2 (= Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de virtutibus 2.208). The original has "taken away" (a)naxqh=nai) in place of the Suda's "received" a)nadexqh=nai.
[2] Perhaps Symeon Metaphrastes, Adler conjectured. More specifically, as TLG searching shows, from the set-up line to a number of sayings of the desert fathers, e.g. Apophthegmata patrum 4.9, 4.69, 4.70.
