Headword: Εἰσφρήσειν
Adler number: epsiloniota,332
Translated headword: to let in
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to bring in, to admit. The word [is] common in the orators.
Greek Original:
Εἰσφρήσειν: εἰσάξειν, εἰσδέξασθαι. πολὺ τοὔνομα παρὰ τοῖς ῥήτορσιν.
Note:
The headword is future active infinitive of εἰσφρέω . Harpokration s.v., from which this entry derives, says "the word [is] common in old comedy". While both assertions may be true, the later one (here and in Photius) is prima facie an error; it presumably stems from the fact that Harpok. has first cited Antiphon and Demosthenes. In Harpokration both glossing infinitives are in the future tense; the Suda follows Photius in presenting the aorist infinitive εἰσδέξασθαι .
