"Managing the office of quaestor, which I think got its name amongst the Romans from searching-out."[1]
Greek Original:
*koiai/stwr. th\n tou= koiai/stwros die/pwn a)rxh/n, h(\n oi)=mai a)po\ tou= a)nazhtei=n w(=de lele/xqai para\ *(rwmai/ois.
Also spelled kuai/stwr. On this Roman office see generally OCD(4) s.v.; and cf. under omicron 543, pi 2474, tau 951, tau 956.
[1] Part of Menander Protector fr. 18.3 Blockley. Though the headword itself is transliterated from Latin into Greek, this etymological gloss on it is only intelligible if the Greek verb used, a)nazhte/w, is converted into the Latin quaero.
