Greek Original:
Προπεπωκότες: ἀντὶ τοῦ προδεδωκότες. ἐκ μεταφορᾶς δὲ λέγεται. προπεπωκέναι δὲ παρὰ τὴν συνουσίαν πολλὰ μὲν ἀργυρώματα τὸν προειρημένον, πολλὰ δὲ χρυσώματα τῷ Προυσίᾳ.
[1] Abridged from Harpokration s.v., which cites Demosthenes 18.296 for this perfect participle of προπίνω (web address 1).
[2] Polybius fr. 205 Büttner-Wobst (which contains the related infinitive προπεπωκέναι ). Büttner-Wobst follows (541) Valesius (Henri de Valois 1603-1676) in attributing the fragment to Polybius, but records that Schweighäuser remained doubtful that it was genuinely Polybian. Walbank volunteers (755) that the context of the fragment is obscure, and its subject could be either Prusias I (Prousias, c. 243-182 BCE, reigned c. 228-182, king of Bithynia, a region in northern Asia Minor, Barrington Atlas map 86 grid A3) or his son Prusias II (c. 220-149, reigned 182-149; cf. pi 2913, pi 2914).
