[Meaning] more esteemed, fitter-looking.[1] Eunapius [writes]: "Procopius,[2] having inducted the more satisfactory men, was converging through Phrygia[3] upon the Emperor Valens."[4]
Greek Original:
Χαριεστέρους: ἐνδοξοτέρους, εὐπρεπεστέρους. Εὐνάπιος: ὁ δὲ Προκόπιος τοὺς χαριεστέρους ἀναλαβὼν ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Οὐάλεντα διὰ Φρυγίας συνήπτετο.
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the masculine accusative plural of the comparative form of the adjective χαρίεις , ('graceful', 'pleasing', 'accomplished [at some pleasure-producing skill]'); see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The glosses, with the same grammatical form as the headword, derive from the adjectives ἔνδοξος , ('esteemed'), and εὐπρεπής , ('good-looking'), respectively.
[2] Procopius (Jones, et al., pp. 742-743) led a rebellion against Valens, Roman emperor (364-378 CE); OCD(4) s.v., omicron 764.
[3] A central-western region of Asia Minor (present-day Turkey); though its boundaries are fluid, in general it is bounded by Lydia (lambda 783) on the west, Bithynia to the north, by Pisidia (pi 1643) and Lycaonia (lambda 796) to the south, and by the Tuz Gölü (Salt Lake) to the east. See OCD(4) s.v. Phrygia; tau 555 (gloss).
[4] Eunapius fr.32 FHG (4.26); Blockley, Procopius fr. 34.5. The quotation appears to be interrelated with epsilon 936 (so Bernhardy), mu 1048, and pi 380 (Blockley, p. 138); cf. mu 1056. Niebuhr suggested replacing συνήπτετο with συνηπείγετο , was pressing down upon together.
