The unglossed headword (presumably generic/paradigmatic) is present indicative active, first person singular, of protima/w, a verb which often takes both an accusative and a genitive: "honor A (acc.) in preference to B (gen.)," as illustrated in the third, and perhaps the second, of the quotations provided.
Entry lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFV (but added in the margin of A).
[1] A misquotation of Demosthenes 24.207: the relevant impersonal perfect middle/passive (construed with a dative of reference and a genitive of the penalty) should be not proteti/mhtai, from the headword verb, but prosteti/mhtai ('has been sentenced in addition').
[2] Cassius Dio fr. 2.5 Boissevain; cf. Lexica Segueriana De syntacticis 165.21, which also quotes this phrase as an illustration of the syntax of the headword and ascribes the quotation to Book 19 of Dio.
[3] Adler compares the Lexicon Syntacticum of Codex Laurentianus 59.16.
[4] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as coming from Gregory of Nazianzus, Oratio 36 (PG 36.276.10).
