Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they who are] prepared.[1] "[Four] young men outfitted capably."[2]

Greek Original:
Estalmenoi: eskeuasmenoi. neaniai chôrêtikôs estalmenoi. kai authis: pantas de hôs habrotata te kai hama es ekplêxin kata plouton, tôi ge dê plouton thaumazonti, estalmenous.
Notes:
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the first quotation given, is perfect middle/passive participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb ste/llw.
[2] Synesius, Epistle 104.60-61 (205C Hercher). The mss of Synesius, with one exception, read either xwrikw=s or xwritikw=s ('country-style') rather than xwrhtikw=s ('capably').
[3] Quotation (already at alpha 88) unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Aelian.)
