Headword: Ἐθελοπρόξενος
Adler number: epsilon,311
Translated headword: voluntary proxenos
Vetting Status: high
The one who became [a proxenos] by himself, not after instruction by the city. For the [ordinary] proxenoi were under instruction from their own city.
Greek Original:
Ἐθελοπρόξενος: ὁ ἀφ' ἑαυτοῦ γενόμενος καὶ μὴ κελευσθεὶς ἐκ τῆς πόλεως. οἱ γὰρ πρόξενοι κελευόμενοι ἐκ τῆς ἑαυτῶν πόλεως ἐγίνοντο.
More briefly in Hesychius epsilon650.
The word etheloproxenos is used (coined?) by Thucydides 3.70.3, and this is the glossing of the scholia there.
For the ordinary kind of proxenos see pi 2540, and OCD(4) s.v., p.1231 (correctly defining them -- contrary to the explanation given here -- as appointed by another city to function in their own).
