Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

I even, καὶ αὐτοί περ πονεώμεθα Il. 10.70.

II although, albeit, usu. c. part., καὶ αὐτῇ περ νοεούσῃ 1.577; καὶ ἀχνύμενός περ ἑταίρου 8.125; καὶ πρίν περ θυμῷ μεμαώς 5.135; καὶ κήδεά περ πεπαθυίῃ Od. 17.555: so in later Poets, κ. ἀχνύμενος Pi.

R. 495d: the part. must freq. be supplied, καὶ θεός περ [ ὤν ] A. Ag. 1203; γιγνώσκω σαφῶς, κ. σκοτεινὸς [ ὤν ], τήν γε σὴν αὐδὴν ὅμως S. OT 1326; also εἰ μέμονάς γε, καὶ ὀψέ περ [ ἐρυόμενος ],.. ἐρύεσθαι Il. 9.247; ἐπιμνησαίμεθα Χάρμης, καὶ πρὸς δαίμονά περ [ μαχούμενοι ] 17.104; λέγεις ἀληθῆ, κ. ἐκ μακροῦ Χρόνου [ λέγων ] S. OT 1141; ἀλλ' ἔστιν ὧν δεῖ, κ. οὐ πολλῶν ἄπο, = καίπερ οὐ πολλῶν ὄντων, Id. Ph. 647: with finite Verbs only as dub. l., κ. ἔχει (leg. καἴπερ) Pi. N. 4.36; κ. (leg. καίτοι) ἐκεῖνό γε ᾤμην τι εἶναι Pl. Smp. 219c.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

καίπερ (Treg. καί περ in Heb.; from Homer, Odyssey 7, 224 down), conjunc. (originally even very much, cf. Donaldson § 621; Bäumlein, p. 200f; Krüger, § 56, 13, 2; Buttmann, § 144, 23; Winers Grammar, § 45, 2 at the end), although; it is joined to a participle (in Greek writings sometimes also to an adjective, so that ὤν must be supplied): Philippians 3:4; Hebrews 5:8; Hebrews 7:5; Hebrews 12:17; 2 Peter 1:12; contrary to ordinary usage (yet so occasionally in Greek writings) with a finite verb, καίπερ ἐστιν, Revelation 17:8 Rec.; but since Griesbach καί παρέσται (correctly παρέσται (see in πάρειμι)) has been restored after the best manuscripts
