This entry is not found elsewhere in lexicography. The imperfect tense of the headword (from me/teimi, 'I go after, pursue') is glossed by present tenses and with meanings that do not belong to it. The word probably derives from a copyist's error in transcribing the correct gloss of metalagxa/nein at the beginning of Plato's Gorgias, mete/xein ('to participate'). See the fuller notes at mu 699, the entry from which this entry is surely copied.
