[Meaning] they judged, they determined. "After many words had been said in response to each side, the majority approved recognizing the former [sc. opinion]."[1]

Ἐδοκίμασαν: προέκριναν, ἐκύρωσαν. πολλῶν δὲ ῥηθέντων εἰς ἑκάτερα λόγων οἱ πλείους γνῶναι τὴν προτέραν ἐδοκίμασαν.
The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
cf. generally delta 1327, delta 1328, delta 1329, epsilon 245.
[1] Same quotation in ps.-Zonaras and also in the Lexicon Vindobonense. It is unidentifiable in this full form, though the genitive absolute clause is very closely paralleled in Syrianus' Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics: πολλῶν δὲ ῥηθέντων ἐφ' ἑκατέρα λόγων, κρατοίη τῆς τῶν ἐντυγχανόντων διανοίας τὰ ἀληθέστερα καὶ θεοφιλέστερα .
