Greek Original:
Προσκληδονιζόμενος: ἐπ' ἀγαθῷ ὀττευόμενος. Ἰώσηπος: ταῦτά τε δὴ προσκληδονιζόμενος καὶ σταθερὰν μετ' ἐμπειρίας τὴν ἡλικίαν ὁρῶν.
The headword purports to be the masculine nominative singular, present middle/passive participle, of a verb προσκληδονίζω , I give as a promising sign; cf. generally LSJ s.v. κληδονίζω . But the headword is unattested outside this entry and might be wrong: see n. 2 below.
[1] The glossing participle is the same form as the headword, but from the verb ὀττεύομαι , I received an omen; see LSJ s.v.
[2] Josephus, Jewish War 3.6-7 (cf. sigma 982), where the participle is transmitted as προκλῃδονιζόμενος . The Roman emperor Nero Claudius Caesar (37-68, emperor 54-68; OCD(4) s.v.), distressed by his military commanders' failure to suppress the Jewish rebellion in late 66, dispatched general Titus Flavius Vespasianus (9-79, emperor 69-79; OCD(4) s.v. Vespasian) from Achaia to take charge of the army in Syria.
