Headword: Ὑφεῖσθαι
Adler number: upsilon,721
Translated headword: to put under, to give way, to yield
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to disregard, to withdraw.[1] "[... that he] had not indeed yielded his ground, but stayed and held [it]."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὑφεῖσθαι: ἀμελῆσαι, ὑποχωρῆσαι. οὐ μὴν ὑφεῖσθαι τῆς χώρας, ἀλλὰ μεῖναι καὶ κατασχεῖν.
[1] The headword is the perfect middle infinitive of ὑφίημι (the spelling with epsiloniota is guaranteed by the alphabetical order). In the quotation which follows, from indirect speech, Plutarch (see next note) has the aorist infinitive ὑφέσθαι , but the Suda gives it as the headword's ὑφεῖσθαι .
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as Plutarch, Sulla 14.2. Plut. here quotes Sulla's memoirs, recounting the heroic behaviour of Marcus Ateius in the siege of Athens (86 BCE).
