Headword: Προσέσθαι
Adler number: pi,2648
Translated headword: to have let come to, to have admitted, to have accepted
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristophanes [writes]: "but that he is silent and mutters nothing, this is not possible for me to have accepted."[1]
And elsewhere Aelian [writes]: "but she did not accept the gift, maintaining it to be a courtesan's fee to betray herself to an unknown man and to give away her beauty as if it were an item on sale."[2]
And elsewhere: "...so as no longer to admit him into [his] company."[3]
Greek Original:
Προσέσθαι: Ἀριστοφάνης: ἀλλ' ὅτι σιγᾷ κοὐδὲν γρύζει, τοῦτ' οὐ δύναταί με προσέσθαι. ἐφελκύσασθαι. καὶ αὖθις Αἰλιανός: ἡ δὲ οὐ προσεῖτο τὴν δόσιν, ἑταιρικὸν φάσκουσα εἶναι μίσθωμα τὸ ἑαυτὴν παραβάλλειν ἀνδρὶ ἀγνῶτι καὶ ὥσπερ ὤνιον τὸ κάλλος ἀποδόσθαι. καὶ αὖθις: ὥστε μηκέτι αὐτὸν προσέσθαι εἰς ὁμιλίαν.
Notes:
The headword, extracted from the first quotation given, is the aorist middle infinitive of the verb προσίημι , I admit; see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] Aristophanes, Wasps 741-2 (web address 1), with scholia. Bdelycleon ("Loathes-Kleon") expresses to the chorus displeasure with his petulant father Philocleon ("Loves-Kleon"). For Kleon (Develin person no. 1659) see OCD4 s.v. Cleon, and kappa 1731.
[2] Aelian fr.12 Hercher (12b Domingo-Forasté, pp. 23-4); cf. alpha 287, mu 1123, and pi 274. The reluctant woman is Monime of Miletus (Barrington Atlas map 61 grid E2); cf. mu 490 note and mu 1060.
[3] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr.228 Zintzen (134 Asmus - so, tentatively, Adler). It refers to the moment when the Syrian philosopher and mathematician Domninus (c.414 - c.485; cf. delta 1355 end and PLRE s.v. Domninus 4) rebuffed the mathematically brash Asklepiodotos (cf. alpha 4174 and PLRE s.v. Asclepiodotus 3).
