Headword: Προσθέσθαι
Adler number: pi,2705
Translated headword: to side with
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to fight a war alongside. "[...] and to side with Pompey the Great not because of fear of the Romans but goodwill towards both the king and the Romans themselves".[1]
Greek Original:
Προσθέσθαι: συμπολεμῆσαι. καὶ Πομπηί̈ῳ τῷ μεγάλῳ προσθέσθαι οὐ κατὰ δέος τὸ Ῥωμαίων, ἀλλὰ κατ' εὐνοίαν τὴν ἐς βασιλέα τε καὶ αὐτοὺς Ῥωμαίους.
The headword (aorist middle infinitive of προστίθημι ; cf. pi 2706) is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] For Pompey see pi 2024. This quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) was left unidentified by Adler; now Favuzzi [see under alpha 1596] 213 finds vocabulary-based grounds for attributing it to John of Antioch.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history; military affairs; politics
