Headword: *(hgou/menos
Adler number: eta,72
Translated headword: leading, leader, abbot
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one who is] going first and leading the way.
Greek Original:
*(hgou/menos: prohgou/menos.
The headword is present participle of h(ge/omai. (In Christian usage it designates a monastic superior; cf. eta 71.)
The entry invites comparison with the longer one in Photius, Lexicon eta25 Theodoridis, where the headword h(goume/nou (genitive case) occurs in a phrase about Eros quoted from Plato, Republic 573E, and prohgoume/nou is part of the phrase which glosses it.
