Vetting Status: high
[Used] with an accusative. [Meaning he] having judged.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] dokimasqei/sais, ["having been scrutinised"],[2] [meaning] having been judged, having been affirmed. "After learning that [the] Romans did not like the peace-terms that had already been scrutinised by Zacharias, Tanchosdro marched against Roman dominions".[3]
And Aeschylus says, "for I do not want to appear, but to be, right".[4]

[1] This primary headword (evidently extracted from somewhere) is the aorist active participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb dokima/zw, glossed with the same of kri/nw; same gloss in Synagoge delta337, Hesychius delta2124. The glosses given here seem to exclude as a source attestations of the common idiomatic construal of the word with a complementary infinitive -- e.g. Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de virtutibus et vitiis 1.7.19, and Anna Comnena 9.8.1, where the sense is 'thinking it advisable to...'; cf. generally epsilon 245.
[2] Dative plural (feminine) of the aorist passive participle of the same verb (cf. delta 1328), presumably extracted from the quotation that immediately follows.
[3] Menander Protector fr. 18.4 Blockley. Zacharias is the name of the archiatrus sacri Palatii; cf. Excerpta Constantini, De legationibus 199.27, with a more extended text and slight differences (u(po\ *traianou= kai\ *zaxari/ou instead of u(po\ *zaxari/ou). As to 'Tanchosdro', it seems to have been a honour title (meaning "strength of Chosdros") rather than a proper name; also at epsilon 962, tau 89. See Blockley 273.
[4] Aeschylus, Seven Against Thebes 592 (web address 1); see already under delta 1070. This quotation illustrates a distinct, though related, verb, doke/w ('seem').
