Headword: *)ecele/gxein
Adler number: epsilon,1614
Translated headword: to expose utterly, to put to the test
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to make clear.[1] "He thought it right to expose utterly, by (?)tortures, what had been done in a speedy fashion."[2]
Greek Original:
*)ecele/gxein: faneropoiei=n. o( de\ h)ci/ou h(=| ta/xos ta\ praxqe/nta basa/nois e)cele/gxein.
[1] The headword is present infinitive of e)cele/gxw, presumably extracted from the quotation given. On this verb see generally LSJ s.v. (web adddress 1). In some contexts it can mean confute/refute (sense I there), but here, as both the gloss and the quotation itself suggest, we need the more neutral sense II.
[2] Quotation (also in ps.-Zonaras) unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Aelian.) For "tortures(?)" cf. generally beta 137, beta 139.
