Headword: Ἐνῆγεν
Adler number: epsilon,1301
Translated headword: was urging
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] was setting in motion, was persuading.[1]
Procopius [writes]: "and an assertion of the Christians was urging him to this and was vexing his heart, because they were insisting that Edessa was impregnable."[2]
And elsewhere: "the need of the expedition, urgent as it was (which he was clearly providing for everyone in common), and the beauty and the great size of his body was urging everyone into both the prayers on his behalf and the required goodwill."[3]
Greek Original:
Ἐνῆγεν: ἐκίνει, παρέπειθεν. Προκόπιος: ἐνῆγε δὲ αὐτὸν ἐς τοῦτο Χριστιανῶν λόγος καὶ ἔδακνεν αὐτοῦ τὴν διάνοιαν, ὅτι ἀνάλωτον Ἔδεσσαν ἰσχυρίζοντο εἶναι. καὶ αὖθις: ἐνῆγε δὲ πάντας εἴς τε τὰς εὐχὰς τὰς ὑπὲρ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν ὀφειλομένην εὔνοιαν, ἥ τε χρεία τῆς στρατείας ἀναγκαία οὖσα, ἣν ὑπὲρ πάντων κοινῇ ποιούμενος δῆλος ἦν, τό τε κάλλος τὸ τοῦ σώματος καὶ τὸ μέγεθος.
Notes:
[1] The headword is imperfect, third person singular, of ἐνάγω (cf. epsilon 1087). Apparently quoted from Thucydides 4.21.3, the scholia to which have the second of these glosses. (Different glossing in Photius, Lexicon epsilon916.)
[2] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 2.12.7.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable.
