Headword: Μεταδιδάξαι
Adler number: mu,690
Translated headword: to teach something new, to change someone's mind
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to abandon one's prior opinion and to arrive at another.[1]
"And they were not persuaded when the commander was trying to change their mind; nor were they affected by his entreaties, though he pleaded and begged them."[2]
Greek Original:
Μεταδιδάξαι: τὸ τὴν προτέραν ἀφεῖναι βουλὴν καὶ ἐλθεῖν ἐπ' ἄλλην. καὶ οὔτε μεταδιδάσκοντος ἐπείθοντο τοῦ ἡγεμόνος οὔτε ὀλοφυρομένου καὶ ἱκετεύοντος ἔπασχόν τι πρὸς τὰς δεήσεις.
Notes:
The headword is the aorist active infinitive of μεταδιδάσκω . It must be quoted from somewhere (other than the quotation given, which uses a present participle of this verb); perhaps from Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 1.15.
[1] No equivalent glossing elsewhere.
[2] Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 9.3.5 (referring to Roman soldiers mutinying against Kaeso Fabius Vibulanus).
