[Meaning she who is] exchanging. "For each [girl] wished to live, stranger, without any reproach and gaining a living from her own hands."[1]
Also [sc. attested is the related infinitive] a)/rnusqai ["to gain"], [meaning] to exchange. Whence also the [verb] misqarnei=n ["to earn a wage"] is said [to be] to take a salary in exchange for something. But [a)/rnusqai] stands for procuring and for maintaining. Thus Plato [sc. uses the word].[2]

[1] Greek Anthology 6.174.7-8 (generally attributed to Antipater of Sidon), three women dedicate spinning and weaving instruments to Athena, again at omicron 340; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 12-13); (vol. II, 37-38); and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 3750, eta 190, kappa 1400, mu 1135, and tau 38.
