[Meaning he] was dying on behalf [of someone]. "But he was taking risks before the multitude not like a general [...], but like a [sc. common] soldier."[1] Meaning carelessly.
Greek Original:
*prou)kindu/neuen: u(perape/qnhsken. o( de\ prou)kindu/neue tou= plh/qous ou) strathgikw=s, a)lla\ stratiwtikw=s. a)nti\ tou= eu)telw=s.
The headword -- third person singular, imperfect, of prokinduneu/w -- is presumably extracted from the quotation (its only independent occurrence).
[1] An abbreviation and approximation of Agathias, Histories 5.23. Adler notes that a marginal comment in ms M has the quotation ending at strathgikw=s, with eu)telw=s and stratiwtikw=s as glosses of it. In fact Agathias does make his contrast explicit, but with stratiwtikw/teron.
