[Meaning] to be pleased [with], to accept.[1] Appian [writes]: "the consuls tendered the oaths and said that they would yield to anyone rather than to admit Tarquinius."[2]
Greek Original:
Προσήσεσθαι: ἀρεσθῆναι, δέξασθαι. Ἀππιανός: οἱ ὕπατοι τὰ ὅρκια προὔτεινον καὶ ἐς πάντας ἔφασαν ἐνδώσειν μᾶλλον ἢ Ταρκύνιον προσήσεσθαι.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
