Translated headword: in the way
Vetting Status: high
Thucydides in [book] 8 [uses this word] to mean at hand. For he says: "only to examine the causes at hand, but to strive after nothing further with [one's?] intentions."[1] Lycurgus in the [speech] Against Lycophron [also uses it], to mean clear.[2] Plato [uses it] to mean central.[3] Isaeus [uses it] to mean recent and in one's hands; for he says in the restoration of liberty [speech] on behalf of Eumathes "but yesterday, men of Athens; for this is entirely in the way"[4]. Hierocles, amongst others, used the word to mean impeding: he says in [book] 2 of Philosophical Matters, about philosophers, "for which of them did not even marry and raise children and care for property, if there was nothing impeding it?".[5]
"Since he who does not know is more trustworthy than he who does know amongst those who do not know, as Plato says,[6] Illous, once deceived by meditative babble, judged him more erudite than all the teachers of Constantine.[7] Hence he gave him much encouragement from the public funds".[8]
