Headword: Παρ' ὅσον
Adler number: pi,703
Translated headword: to the extent to which
Vetting Status: high
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.
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.
