[1] The headword (perhaps, though not demonstrably, extracted from the quotation given here) is third person singular, imperfect, of the verb presbeu/w, in sense I.2 at LSJ s.v. See again -- in another context -- at the end of epsilon 3782.
[2] See generally Diogenes Laertius 1.14 and 2.16 (S. 'introduced' moral philosophy). For the actual phrase given here, see under sigma 829 (but with aorist rather than imperfect).
