Greek Original:
Ἱερᾶσθαι: ἱερουργεῖν. ἢ Ἱερᾶσθαι, τοὺς ἱεροὺς νενομίσθαι.
[1] The primary headword is present infinitive of ἱεράομαι (also under alpha 783, delta 209, delta 1452, mu 1219). Same glossing in other lexica; see the references at Photius iota42 Theodoridis.
[2] Perfect middle/passive infinitive of ἱεράζω ; cf. iota 203. The plural definite article τοὺς should be neuter singular τὸ , as in iota 203 as well as Aelius Dionysius and Photius. Perhaps the verb should also be emended to ἱερῶσθαι .
