Spanish to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - History
Spanish term or phrase:Poner perdido
In a literary piece in Castillian Spanish, the author says "el rey de Frigia había puesto perdida de griegos la costa meridional de Anatolia" and in the next sentence goes on to say "Su afición a los griegos era extraordinaria".
So in this context does "puesto perdida de grigos" mean "filled up with Greeks" or is it "got rid of the Greeks" with the next sentence being sardonic (the author is prone to making joking remarks).
