Headword: *paragge/llonta
Adler number: pi,306
Translated headword: canvassing
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning him] accepting the office.[1] "When Fabius entered office he appointed to the consulship Publius, who was not himself canvassing for the office."[2]
Greek Original:
*paragge/llonta: dexo/menon th\n a)rxh/n. o( de\ *fa/bios labw\n th\n a)rxh\n *po/plion a)podei/knusin u(/paton, ou)d' au)to\n paragge/llonta th\n a)rxh/n.
The headword is present participle, masculine accusative singular, of the verb paragge/llw; cf. pi 307, pi 308. It is presumably extracted from the quotation given, but see next note.
[1] The use of the headword in the quotation appears to require the definition "seeking office" as opposed to "accepting office". The glossing participle dexo/menon however is not capable of meaning "seeking".
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable, but the allusion is apparently to Q. Fabius Maximus Cunctator (dictator 221 BCE) and P. Cornelius Scipio Asina, one of the consuls of that year.
