Headword: Προσδέξασθαι
Adler number: pi,2617
Translated headword: to admit, to receive
Vetting Status: high
"But to receive the enemy, as the saying goes, into one's ribs."[1] Meaning close up.
Greek Original:
Προσδέξασθαι: προσδέξασθαι δέ, τὸ δὴ λεγόμενον, εἰς τὰς πλευρὰς τοὺς πολεμίους. ἀντὶ τοῦ σύνεγγυς.
The headword, aorist infinitive of the verb προσδέχομαι (for which see also pi 2618), is presumably extracted from the quotation given
[1] Polybius fr. 209. It is followed here by a gloss not of the entry's headword but of another part of the phrase quoted.
