sitting with the guards

The Greek that is translated as “sitting with the guards” or similar in English is translated in Seri “Peter was seated in the corral of the house of the high priest with the soldier-guards.” Seri houses do not have patios nor porches. They often do have a fence around them inside of which is an enclosed area which serves as a yard. No animals are kept in this corral. (Source: B. Moore / G. Turner in Notes on Translation 1967, p. 1ff.)
