Headword: Παρ' ὅσον
Adler number: pi,703
Translated headword: to the extent to which
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning to a great extent. "Seeing the marks of beauty being defiled he was mourning and bewailing the change, to the extent to which it happened."[1]
Greek Original:
Παρ' ὅσον: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπὶ πολύ. τὰ σημεῖα τοῦ κάλλους ἰδὼν λυμαινόμενα ὠλοφύρετο καὶ κατεστέναζε τὴν μεταβολήν, παρ' ὅσον γένοιτο.
Notes:
The headword phrase is presumably extracted from the quotation given (though it is common enough elsewhere, both as a two-word phrase like this and as παρόσον ; the Suda has 51 instances of the latter).
[1] A paraphrase (as Gaisford first realised) of Josephus, Jewish War 6.7. The "he" who is "seeing" is a notional observer of the sorry state of Jerusalem.
