Headword: Προμηθεῖσθαι
Adler number: pi,2509
Translated headword: to take care, to use forethought
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to debate, to foresee.[1]
Greek Original:
Προμηθεῖσθαι: προβουλεύεσθαι, προνοεῖσθαι.
The headword is the present middle/passive infinitive of the verb προμηθέομαι , I am mindful, take care of beforehand; cf. pi 2505, pi 2507, and see generally LSJ s.v. The entry is probably transposed, in the immediate sense, from prior lexicography, but see further, next note.
[1] The first gloss is the same form as the headword, but from the verb προβουλεύω , I deliberate beforehand, contrive; cf. pi 2349 and see generally LSJ s.v. [In her critical apparatus Adler reports that mss AF transmit προβουλεύσασθαι , the aorist middle infinitive: to have contrived beforehand.] The second gloss is again the same form as the headword, but from the contract verb προνοέω , I foresee, perceive beforehand; see generally LSJ s.v. The headword is identically glossed in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (pi1261 Theodoridis), and Lexica Segueriana 349.21; cf. Anecdota Graeca (Cramer) 2.483.5, Lexicon in orationes Gregorii Nazianzeni at pi183.19, and Erotian 109.11 (Klein). Theodoridis on Photius suggests that the headword might be quoted from tragedy: a variant reading for προθυμεῖσθαι at (?)Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 381, is προμηθεῖσθαι , which the scholia there gloss with προνοεῖσθαι .
