"But [Decebalus] summoned the countries around him, declaring that if they deserted him, then they too would be running a risk."[2]
Greek Original:
Πρόωνται: αὐθυπότακτον. προδώσουσιν, ἀμελήσουσιν. ὁ δὲ τοὺς περιχώρους παρεκάλει, λέγων ὅτι ἐὰν αὐτὸν πρόωνται, καὶ αὐτοὶ κινδυνεύσουσι.
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is the aorist subjunctive middle, third person plural, of the verb προίημι , I send beforehand, let go, give away, but in the middle voice also I abandon, desert; see generally LSJ s.v. B.II.2.
[1] The first glossing verb is the future indicative active, third person plural (with nu movable), of the verb προδίδωμι ; cf. the aorist infinitives of the headword and this gloss at pi 2394, Synagoge s.v. προέσθαι , and see generally LSJ s.v. The second glossing verb is the same form but from the verb ἀμελέω ; see generally LSJ s.v.
[2] Cassius Dio 68.11.2 (where the verb is accented προῶνται : web address 1). The passage describes the political and military strife instigated in the summer of 103 CE by Decebalus (Dekebalos, ruled 85-106 CE; cf. delta 189, delta 344, and OCD(4) s.v.), king of Dacia (Dakia, lower Danube region; cf. delta 23 and OCD(4) s.v. Dacia; Barrington Atlas map 21 grids E-F4), often thwarting Trajan (Roman emperor 98-117 CE; cf. tau 902 and OCD(4) s.v.); Seton-Watson, p. 2. The quotation is also given by Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de Legationibus 427.16. [In her critical apparatus Adler notes that mss GM omit ὅτι : that.]
