Headword: *sumpi/ptein
Adler number: sigma,1393
Translated headword: to engage directly, to fight at close quarters
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to come into direct conflict. "And they armed them and ordered [them] to engage directly in battle."[1]
Greek Original:
*sumpi/ptein: ma/xhn suna/ptein. oi( de\ w(/plizon au)tou\s kai\ e)ke/leuon e)s ma/xhn sumpi/ptein.
[1] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as an approximation of Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 4.22; see on this Theodoridis in his Photius edition, vol.II p.XCVIII. (In the original the infinitive is cumpi/ptein rather than the Suda's sumpi/ptein (twice over), and the phrase 'in battle' does not appear; it has perhaps crept in from the gloss.)
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; military affairs; rhetoric
