This entry is not found elsewhere in lexicography. The imperfect tense of the headword (from μέτειμι , 'I go after, pursue') is glossed by present tenses and with meanings that do not belong to it. The word probably derives from a copyist's error in transcribing the correct gloss of μεταλαγχάνειν at the beginning of Plato's Gorgias, μετέχειν ('to participate'). See the fuller notes at mu 699, the entry from which this entry is surely copied.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; philosophy
