      I hope someone can take a crack at this one. It appears in Book 11, line 24
      of the Paraphrase of John by Nonnos, corresponding to John 11:6

      the word is: telessimorou

      the line reads (in perfect dactyllic hexameter):
      dichthadie^s parameibe telessimorou dromon e^ous.

      it is paraphrasing:
      tote men emeinen (epi to^i topo^i) duo hemeras

      Thanks for your help
