Headword: Ἔνστασις
Adler number: epsilon,1440
Translated headword: establishment, inauguration; obstruction
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"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.
Notes:
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.)
