[Meaning] he who sails for a fare on someone else's ship,[1] or a businessman.
Greek Original:
*)/emporos: o( nau/lou ple/wn e)p' a)llotri/as new/s, h)\ pragmateuth/s.
For the headword see already epsilon 1045 (and again epsilon 1047). Same or similar glossing in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon; cf. scholia on Homer, Odyssey 2.319, and Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 904 and 1179.
[1] This stipulation that the ship must not be his own (accepted by modern scholars such as Johannes Hasebroek, Trade and Politics in Ancient Greece (English tr: New York 1965) 3) is thus held to differentiate the e)/mporos from the nau/klhros (nu 56) who does own and operate his own vessel(s).
