Headword: Ὑπεσταλκότες
Adler number: upsilon,395
Translated headword: sheltered
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"Others, sheltered behind these, were applying fire to the gates."[1] Meaning slipping under, insinuating.
Greek Original:
Ὑπεσταλκότες: ἄλλοι δὲ τούτοις ὑπεσταλκότες πῦρ προσέφερον ταῖς πύλαις. ἀντὶ τοῦ ὑποδύντες, ὑπεισελθόντες.
Notes:
The headword (perfect active participle, masculine nominative plural, of ὑποστέλλω ) is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. Whether 'these' are men or things cannot be determined.
