Headword: *)ekde/casqai
Adler number: epsilon,386
Translated headword: to take over
Vetting Status: high
[sc. This verb is used] not in reference to awaiting, but in reference to accepting and taking up.[1]
To take over [something] is to receive [it] from someone else and attempt the second stage oneself. One should examine what was transmitted in the 5th Philippic [sc. of Demosthenes]: "the matter of seeming to take over something of what he did".[2]
Greek Original:
*)ekde/casqai: ou)k e)pi\ tou= a)namei=nai, a)ll' e)pi\ tou= a)nade/casqai kai\ a)nalabei=n. *)ekde/casqai/ e)sti to\ par' e(te/rou labo/nta au)to\n e)gxeirei=n to\ deu/teron. e)piskepte/on de\ to\ e)n tw=| e# *filippikw=| lhfqe/n: kai\ to\ dokei=n e)kde/xesqai tw=n e)kei/nw| pepragme/nwn.
The headword is the aorist infinitive of e)kde/xomai (cf. epsilon 388, epsilon 389).
[1] Likewise in ps.-Zonaras.
[2] The quoted phrase comes, via Harpokration s.v., from ch.18 of Demosthenes 5, On the Peace (a "Philippic" speech in the broad ancient sense of that term, not the restricted modern one). The final three words, here "what he did", should be "what they (the Spartans) did". (See web address 1 below for the text of Demosthenes 5.18.)
