[sc. This verb] signifies many things. Isaeus used [it] to mean to carry and to lead in and to drag: "for Xenocles hurt me", he says, "by taking Eumathes off into freedom, when I was leading [him] into slavery."[1] But Antiphon adopted a)/goi to mean considered/held: for he says in the On Truth "may [he] hold the laws great."[2]

Abridged from Harpokration s.v. The headword is present optative, third person singular, of the verb a)/gw, presumably quoted from Antiphon (see below); but other material intervenes.
