Headword: Ἐπιτήδευσις
Adler number: epsilon,2683
Translated headword: attention, cultivation, pursuit
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] activity, and zeal, and diligence.[1]
"He was insignificant in his pursuit[s], [being] nothing but a shepherd in origin."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπιτήδευσις: πρᾶξις, καὶ σπουδή, καὶ ἐργασία. ὁ δὲ ἦν εὐτελὴς τὴν ἐπιτήδευσιν, οὐδὲν ὅτι μὴ ποιμὴν τὸ κατ' ἀρχάς.
Notes:
cf. generally epsilon 2681, epsilon 2682.
[1] The headword is an abstract noun derived from the verb ἐπιτηδεύω (epsilon 2684). Same glossing in Photius and other lexica; first of the glosses also in the scholia to Thucydides 2.36.4, where the genitive case of the word occurs.
[2] Quotation identified in Adler's addenda as John of Antioch fr. 60 FHG (now 137 Roberto); cf. also Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus, De insidiis 22 (on 'Borianthos'); and more distantly related to Eutropius, Breviarium 4.16 ('Pouriathos').
