Headword: *kaqei=nai
Adler number: kappa,64
Translated headword: to let grow
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to let loose downwards.[1]
"They say that Antisthenes was the first to let his beard grow and to use a pouch and staff".[2]
Greek Original:
*kaqei=nai: e)pi\ to\ ka/tw a)polu=sai. *)antisqe/nhn fasi\ prw=ton pw/gwna kaqei=nai kai\ ba/ktrw| kai\ ph/ra| xrh/sasqai.
[1] Aorist active infinitive of kaqi/hmi. Same glossing in other lexica.
[2] A clumsy summary of Diogenes Laertius 6.13; the claim about beard-growing actually concerns not Antisthenes (alpha 2723) but another philosopher, Diodoros of Aspendos. For the idiom pw/gwna kaqei=nai see already Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 99-100, and generally LSJ s.v. kaqi/hmi.
