Headword: Δοκιμαστῆρες
Adler number: delta,1330
Translated headword: scrutineers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the examiners.[1]
"Despite being, even before, a notable person among all the Italians at least, [now], as it was natural, he won an even greater renown because of his generosity."[2]
Greek Original:
Δοκιμαστῆρες: οἱ ἐτασταί. ὁ δὲ ὢν καὶ πρότερον ἔν γε Ἰταλιώταις πᾶσι δόκιμος μεῖζον ὡς τὸ εἰκὸς ἐπὶ φιλανθρωπίᾳ κλέος ἀπήνεγκεν.
Notes:
[1] The plural headword is very probably taken from Polybius 24.7.5; cf. chi 175. The gloss, also in ps.-Zonaras, is a rare, prefix-less variant of ἐξετασταί (cf. epsilon 1668).
[2] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 7.16.6 (Excerpta Constantini, De legationibus 112.12-14), on Pelagius (cf. delta 590). The quotation is not well-placed in this context, as it does not contain the headword; perhaps better under delta 1331 as an example of the use of δόκιμος as an adjective.
