"But Libania, spurning his boldness and nobility, had taken him captive."[1]
In place of ὑπηγάγετο ["took"].[2]

Ὑπῆκτο: ἡ δὲ Λιβανία τὸ θρασὺ αὐτοῦ καὶ γενναῖον ἀποκόψασα αἰχμάλωτον ὑπῆκτο. ἀντὶ τοῦ ὑπηγάγετο.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. (There is no obvious basis for Valckenaer's attribution of it, noted by Adler, to Aelian. Adler also notes Bernhardy's view that the name Libania is corrupt.)
[2] The headword verb, a pluperfect middle of ὑπάγω , third person singular, is here glossed with the aorist middle of the same verb.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; women
