Greek Original:
Παρόν: ἐξόν, δυνατόν, δέον. διὸ καὶ παρὸν κωλύειν, ὑποπιμπράντες. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ ἤσχαλλεν, ἐν συμφορᾷ μεγάλῃ ποιούμενος, εἰ μή τις αὐτὸν ἐῴη, παρὸν οὐδενὶ πόνῳ τὸ κράτος τοῦ πολέμου παντὸς φέρεσθαι.
[1] Neuter nominative/accusative participle of πάρειμι (from εἶναι "to be"). Same glosses in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon and in Photius; evidently quoted from somewhere, but too commonplace to identify.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as an approximation of Josephus, Jewish War 6.167 (with the participle ὑποπίμπραντας in the accusative plural; the Suda changes this to nominative plural). See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXVI.
[3] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 6.29.4.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history; military affairs
