Greek Original:
Προὔχειν: προέχειν. τί λέγειν ἢ τί πράττειν χρή, φράζε μοι. τέχνα γὰρ τέχνας ἑτέρας προὔχει.
The headword is a form of the present active infinitive of προέχω , spelled with crasis; the gloss is the same form without crasis. Same entry in Lexica Segueriana 353.7 and in Photius pi1416 Theodoridis, similar one already in Hesychius pi4050 s.v. προὔχει ). Theodoridis cites four instances in Thucydides, favouring (for some unspecified reason) 1.25.4.
[2] Sophocles, Philoctetes 136-8 (a choral lyric passage with Doric dialect forms: web address 1). For τέχνας ἑτέρας here as genitive singular (rather than accusative plural) see LSJ s.v. πρόεχω , B.II.3.
