Greek Original:
Προσεποιήθη: ὁ δὲ ὠργίζετο μὲν ἀθετηθείς, οὐ μὴν προσεποιήθη κατὰ τὸ παρόν. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐφανέρωσεν, ἐνεδείξατο. Δαμάσκιος: ᾐσθάνετο μὲν οὖν ἡμῶν ταύτῃ πη διακειμένων, οὐ μέντοι προσεποιήθη τὸν νοῦν προσέχειν. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ πολλάκις ἀκούων οὐ προσεποιεῖτο.
The headword -- illustrated by the first and second quotations given -- is aorist passive of προσποιέω , third person singular. This verb in the middle (and aorist passive) with a negative means "pretend the contrary" (LSJ s.v. A.II.5). See also pi 2643, pi 2797.
