Adler number: upsilon,215

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] excelling. "But [sc. it is said that] him being advanced in age and surpassing the (?)overseer received an injury to the head."[1]
Greek Original:
Ὑπεράγοντα: ὑπερέχοντα. τὸν δὲ ἡλικίᾳ ὑψηλὸν ὄντα καὶ ὑπεράγοντα τὸν ἐπίσκοπον, τὴν βλάβην τῇ κεφαλῇ δέξασθαι.
The headword -- present participle of ὑπεράγω , masculine accusative singular -- is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable; de Boor suggested Theodorus Lector or John of Antioch (but not accepted as Johnian by U.Roberto).
