v. trans.

Slip in: Ar. and P. παρεμβάλλειν. Put in front: P. and V. προβάλλειν, Ar. and P. προὔχειν (Xen.). Arbitrate, absol.: P. βραβεύειν, διαιτᾶν. In conversation: P. ὑπολαμβάνειν. Nothing could have interposed to prevent our being at once engaged in hostilities against the Cardians and Cersobleptes: P. οὐδὲν ἂν ἦν ἐν μέσῳ πολεμεῖν ἡμᾶς πρὸς Καρδιανοὺς ἤδη καὶ Κερσοβλέπτην (Dem. 682). Oppose: P. and V. ἀνθίστασθαι; in words: P. and V. ἀντιλέγειν; see oppose.
