Greek Original:
*pragmatikw/taton: e)nerghtikw/taton. o(\ dh\ kai\ pragmatikw/taton gegone/nai to\ diabou/lion. kai\ au)=qis: tou=to de\ e)poi/ei nounexw=s a(/ma kai\ pragmatikw=s.
The headword, presumably extracted from the first quotation given, is the superlative degree, neuter nominative/accusative singular (and masculine accusative singular), of the adjective pragmatiko/s, -h/, -o/n, fit for action, effective; see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The gloss is the same form as the headword, but from the adjective e)nerghtiko/s, able to act upon, energetic; cf. epsilon 635 (gloss) and see generally LSJ s.v.
[2] Polybius fr. 203 (Büttner-Wobst). [Its beginning, o(\ dh\ kai/, has been suspected as faulty. In her critical apparatus Adler notes that Bernhardy suggested o(\ dh\ kai\ e)do/kei, whereas Hultsch opted for e)do/kei alone.]
[3] Polybius fr. 204 (Büttner-Wobst), containing an adverb related to the headword. Büttner-Wobst (p. 541n) notes that Valesius [= Henri de Valois 1603-1676, classical historian and philologist] attributed both it and the quotation at pi 2394 (q.v.) to Polybius.
