Headword: *proseilh/fesan
Adler number: pi,2663
Translated headword: they had presumed

[Meaning] they supposed, they imagined. Josephus [writes]: "for they presumed from his appearance that he [would] not deny any of the things that were suspected, but that he had done it all in order to obtain pardon."[1]
Greek Original:

Parallel entry in the Lexicon Vindobonense (pi36). The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given; but see further, next note.
[1] An approximation of Josephus, Jewish War 2.603 (transmitted, in Adler's estimation, via the Excerpta of Constantine Porphyrogenitus). This version of the passage not only has an aorist infinitive a)rnh/sasqai ('to deny') where Josephus has, properly, a future infinitive (a)rnh/sesqai); it also presents the headword itself as proseilh/fesan rather than proeilh/fesan (the latter implying pre-judgment or pre-supposition). Same error -- and more -- in the Lex.Vind. version.
