Adler number: gamma,420

[Meaning] of a teaching-place. "[...] as being promoted unexpectedly out of the grammar-school and that kind of condition, he had a lot of spirit."[1]

Greek Original:
Γραμματείου: διδασκαλείου. ἅτε προηγμένος ἀνελπίστως ἐκ τοῦ γραμματείου καὶ τῆς τοιαύτης διαθέσεως πολὺς ἐπέπνει. ἔνθεν μὲν χρυσόν τε καὶ ἄργυρον καὶ γραμματεῖα βασιλικὰ, τὴν τῶν πατρικίων τιμὴν δωρούμενα.
Notes:
The headword (genitive case) is presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 179 Zintzen (109 Asmus); cf. pi 1828.
[2] γραμματεῖα here used in a different sense from the first quotation.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler tentatively suggests Symeon Metaphrastes.) This sentence is omitted in some manuscripts and placed elsewhere on the page in others.
