Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to hold the views of a Megarian.[1] For "Stilpon the philosopher was from Megara, in Greece;[2] [it was he] who so far excelled the rest in inventiveness and sophistry that almost the whole of Greece looked away from others to him [and chose] to Megarise".[3]
Greek Original:
Μεγαρίσαι: τὰ Μεγαρέως δοξάσαι. Στίλπων γὰρ ὁ φιλόσοφος Μεγαρεὺς ἦν, τῆς Ἑλλάδος: ὃς τοσοῦτον εὑρησιλογίᾳ καὶ σοφιστείᾳ προῆγε τοὺς ἄλλους, ὡς μικροῦ δεῆσαι πᾶσαν τὴν Ἑλλάδα ἀφορῶσαν εἰς αὐτὸν μεγαρίσαι.
[1] The headword is the aorist infinitive of the verb μεγαρίζω , used in the passage about to be quoted. This is one of that verb's two senses: see LSJ s.v.
[2] Compare epsilon 3539, and contrast theta 136.
[3] Diogenes Laertius 2.113. For Stilpo(n), cf. epsilon 3539, sigma 1114.
