(This is a modified version of a querry I sent two weeks ago, and to which
I have had no response. Perhaps it did not reach the list - at least I
hope that is why I have had no answers).

I am writing to inquire how one might distinguish when a given pre-
3rd cent. C.E. author is using PEIRAZW as opposed to PEIRAW. There are
times when the forms of these verbs overlap. How then can we tell in
these instances which verb the author is employing?

I would be grateful for any help in this matter.

Thanks in advance,

Jeffrey Gibson
