Headword: Proeilometha
Adler number: pi,2407
Translated headword: we chose, we preferred, we removed
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] we let go.
Greek Original:
Proeilometha: proêkamen.
Notes:
Same entry in Photius (pi1214 Theodoridis) and the Lexica Segueriana. The headword is first person plural, aorist indicative middle, of proaire/w. It must be quoted from somewhere; perhaps Demosthenes (54.24) or Plato (Politicus 281C, 292B), though there are later alternatives. In any event, the gloss seems a poor fit.
cf. pi 2374, pi 2406.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; philosophy; rhetoric
