Headword: Προσευσχολεῖν
Adler number: pi,2655
Translated headword: to focus one's attention
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to look at carefully. "[...] but to forget about their business and focus their attention on looking at him."[1]
Greek Original:
Προσευσχολεῖν: ἐπιμελῶς βλέπειν. ἀφιέναι δὲ τὸ σπουδαζόμενον καὶ τῇ θεωρίᾳ προσευσχολεῖν αὐτοῦ.
Note:
[1] A close approximation -- τὸ σπουδαζόμενον should be plural -- of Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 2.231 (via Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de virtutibus 1.40), in reference to the effect on passers-by of the sight of the youthful Moses. For the headword infinitive see also Josephus, Jewish War 4.591. LSJ s.v. mysteriously cites, besides, 'Anon. ap Suid.'
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; gender and sexuality; historiography; history; religion
