overpeer (v.) 1
look down on, look out over, overlook
1H6 I.iv.11 [Master Gunner to Boy] the English ... / Wont through a secret grate of iron bars / In yonder tower to overpeer the city
3H6 V.ii.14 [Warwick alone, of the cedar] Whose top branch over-peered Jove's spreading tree
MV I.i.12 [Salerio to Antonio] your argosies with portly sail ... / Do overpeer the petty traffickers / That curtsy to them
