Headword: Χρηματίζεσθαι
Adler number: chi,479
Translated headword: to gain, to make a profit
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to make money [χρήματα ]. But if someone should say the word in the active voice, χρηματίζει , it no longer means the same thing, but [it means] "to conduct business"; as we say, "the council and the people are conducting business", like "[he] is devoted to business matters". From this [verb comes] χρήματα ["affairs"], [meaning] business.
Greek Original:
Χρηματίζεσθαι: χρήματα πράττεσθαι. ἐὰν δέ τις εἴπῃ τὴν λέξιν ἐνεργητικῶς χρηματίζει, οὐκέτι τὸ αὐτὸ δηλοῖ, ἀλλὰ τὸ πράγμασι χρῆσθαι: οἷον φαμέν, χρηματίζει ἡ βουλὴ καὶ ὁ δῆμος: οἷον πράγμασι σχολάζει. ἀφ' οὗ χρήματα, τὰ πράγματα.
Note:
cf. chi 480. See also the scholia to Plato, Laws 12.949E (web address 1), where the subjunctive form χρηματίζηται appears.
