Headword: Ἐσπούδαζον
Adler number: epsilon,3195
Translated headword: were treating seriously
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] they were being solemn [about], were being careful [about].[1] Polybios [writes]: "for they were treating seriously their retinues and their garments especially, and there was a certain showiness about most of them that exceeded the resources from their livelihood; but they did not care about arms."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐσπούδαζον: ἐσεμνολογοῦντο, ἐπεμελοῦντο. Πολύβιος: ἐσπούδαζον γὰρ τὰς ἀκολουθίας καὶ τὰς ἐσθῆτας διαφερόντως, καί τις ἦν περὶ τοὺς πλείστους καλλωπισμὸς ὑπερέχων τὴν ἐκ τοῦ βίου χορηγίαν: ὅπλων δὲ ἠμέλουν.
Notes:
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is third person plural, imperfect active, of σπουδάζω (sigma 967).
[2] An approximation of Polybios 11.8.5-6, on the predecessors of Philopoimen (phi 409) as Achaian generals. Parts of the same quotation appear at upsilon 274 and (ectopically) at chi 395; cf. also sigma 967.
