Headword: Προσδέξασθαι
Adler number: pi,2617
Translated headword: to admit, to receive
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"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.
Notes:
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.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; imagery; military affairs; proverbs
