Vetting Status: high
Meaning having approved as fit.[1] Eupolis [writes]: "come on now, do you want to hear the composition of an ode or something in the ancient mode? You will say both. But I, after listening, will choose the mode that you would seem to me to have raised up."[2]
"Taking into consideration and raising up everything likely to happen."[3] Meaning approving [it] as fit.
Also [sc. attested is the related neuter noun] ba/stagma ["burden"]: "it became evident why the city's burden was large. For they handed over more than two hundred thousand weapons to the Romans, and two [thousand] catapults."[4]
Also [sc. the aorist infinitive] basta/sai does not signify "to raise up" in Attic authors, but rather means to inspect and to weigh and to examine the weight of something with the hand.[5]
