Adler number: eta,406
Translated headword: thought fit
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] had in mind. Procopius [writes]: "for [Justinian] did not think fit to adapt his deeds to the occasions, but he always did everything out of season."[1]
Also [sc. attested is the plural] ἠξίων ["they thought fit"].[2]
Greek Original:
Ἠξίου: διὰ φροντίδος εἶχε. Προκόπιος: οὐ γὰρ ἠξίου τοῖς καιροῖς ἐναρμόζειν τὰς πράξεις, ἀλλ' ἀπὸ καιροῦ παντὸς εἰργάζετο. καὶ Ἠξίων.
The headword (presumably extracted from the quotation given) is imperfect, third person singular, of the verb ἀξιόω (alpha 2824).
[1] Procopius, Secret History 18.29.
[2] Evidently quoted from somewhere, but not attested in texts available on TLG. It seems to be from ἀξιάω (cited by LSJ from two inscriptions) rather than the usual ἀξιόω .
