Headword: Ἔνστασις
Adler number: epsilon,1440
Translated headword: establishment, inauguration; obstruction
Vetting Status: high
"In accordance with the establishment of life chosen from the beginning." That is ...[1]
"And [they] examining every obstruction of a bush and every outcropping of rock."[2] So by ἔνστασις he means the thick and dense outgrowth of the bushes.
Greek Original:
Ἔνστασις. κατὰ τὴν ἐξ ἀρχῆς αἱρεθεῖσαν ἔνστασιν τῆς ζωῆς. τουτέστιν .... καὶ πᾶσαν ἔνστασιν θάμνου καὶ πᾶσαν πέτρας προσβολὴν διερευνησάμενοι. ἔνστασιν οὖν τὴν συνηρεφῆ ἔκφυσιν καὶ πυκνὴν τῶν θάμνων λέγει.
The headword, nominative singular of this feminine noun, is presumably generated by the first quotation given.
[1] Damascius fr. 67 Zintzen (29 Asmus, 156 Athanassiadi). For ἔνστασις of life, see LSJ s.v. I.2.
[2] This quotation and the gloss on it are lacking, Adler reports, in mss TFV. The quotation itself is unidentifiable. (Adler tentatively suggests Symeon Metaphrastes.)
