Headword: Ἐδοκίμασαν
Adler number: epsilon,246
Translated headword: they approved, they sanctioned
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[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]
Greek Original:
Ἐδοκίμασαν: προέκριναν, ἐκύρωσαν. πολλῶν δὲ ῥηθέντων εἰς ἑκάτερα λόγων οἱ πλείους γνῶναι τὴν προτέραν ἐδοκίμασαν.
Notes:
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 .
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; philosophy; rhetoric
