Slice of persecution (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cut

Here is my best explanation:

'slice' is the definition.

('cut' can be a synonym of 'slice')

'of persecution' is the subsidiary indication.

'of' indicates a hidden word.

'cut' can be found hidden inside 'persecution'.

(Other definitions for cut that I've seen before include "Chop", "Slash", "Reduction; piece of meat", "Shorten; (one's) share", "Reduce; joint (of meat)", "A share of the profits", "Reap", "Shorten; remove", "Gash" and "Abbreviate".)
