Headword: Πρεσβυγένεια
Adler number: pi,2253
Translated headword: seniority of birth
Vetting Status: high

[Meaning an] older generation.[1] Also [sc. attested as] a comparative.[2]
Greek Original:
Πρεσβυγένεια: παλαιοτέρα γένεσις. καὶ συγκριτικῶς.
Notes:
The headword is a feminine noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular; see generally LSJ s.v., and cf. the related adjective at pi 2254. It might be quoted from somewhere in this form (see next note), or else generated by e.g. Herodotus 6.51.1 (web address 1), where the Ionic accusative singular form πρεσβυγενείην appears in material on the two royal families of Sparta.
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica; references at Photius pi1153, where Theodoridis suggests that the headword is quoted from Basil of Caesarea (PG 29.13c).
[2] This addendum is longer in some of the lexica, καὶ συγκριτικῶς προὐργιαίτερον (cf. pi 2909), and as such is discernible as displaced from a lemma προὔργου (pi 2912).
