Headword: *xrhmati/zesqai
Adler number: chi,479
Translated headword: to gain, to make a profit
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to make money [xrh/mata]. But if someone should say the word in the active voice, xrhmati/zei, it no longer means the same thing, but [it means] "to conduct business"; as we say, "the council and the people are conducting business", like "[he] is devoted to business matters". From this [verb comes] xrh/mata ["affairs"], [meaning] business.
