Greek display:    

Headword: Χρῶσαν
Adler number: chi,547
Translated headword: proclaiming
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] her giving an oracular response.[1] Thucydides [writes]: "proclaiming to [the] Lacedaemonians."[2]
Greek Original:
Χρῶσαν: τὴν χρησμῳδοῦσαν. Θουκυδίδης: χρῶσαν Λακεδαιμονίοις.
Notes:
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation, is the present active participle of χράω , feminine accusative singular. Compare generally chi 541.
[2] Adler hesitantly gives the reference as Thucydides 5.16.2, on the allegation that King Pleistoanax of Sparta (pi 1741) had bribed the Delphic priestess to give certain responses. This must be right, even though what occurs there is not the headword participle but the infinitive χρῆσαι (web address 1).
