Headword: Παρορκῆσαι
Adler number: pi,700
Translated headword: to forswear [themselves], to violate an oath
Vetting Status: high
Appian [writes]: "at once they incited the Britons to violate their oath, as [the Britons] alleged that although a treaty with them was in force the camp [= army] was still present among them."[1]
Greek Original:
Παρορκῆσαι: Ἀππιανός: εὐθὺς ἠρέθιζον τοὺς Βρεττανοὺς παρορκῆσαι, ἔγκλημα ἔχοντας, ὅτι σπονδῶν σφίσι γενομένων ἔτι παρῆν τὸ στρατόπεδον.
The unglossed headword, aorist infinitive of παρορκέω , is presumably extracted from the quotation (its only other attestation).
[1] Appian, Gallica fr.19.
