Headword: Σαλεύει
Adler number: sigma,52

Vetting Status: high

[Meaning he/she/it] lives, passes time.[1] "[...] the master of the inhabited world, [...] in whom everything moves."[2]

Greek Original:
Σαλεύει: ζῇ, διάγει. τὸν τῆς οἰκουμένης δεσπότην, ἐν ᾧ σαλεύει τὰ πάντα. καὶ αὖθις: ὥσπερ οὖν οὐχ ὑπὲρ τῶν ἐσχάτων σαλεύουσα, ἀλλ' ἐφειμένη δρᾶν ὅ τι καὶ θέλει. καὶ αὖθις: σαλευόντων ἐπὶ λεπταῖς ἐλπίσι πολλῶν.
Notes:
[1] For the verb σαλεύω see also sigma 53. Its present indicative active (third person singular), here, is presumably exatracted comes from the quotation which immediately follows.
[2] Tentatively attributed to Damascius by Adler, and adopted as such by Zintzen (as Life of Isidore fr. 399); however, as C. Theodoridis shows in his Photius edition (vol.II p.LXXXVIII) this is actually an abridgement of Josephus, Jewish War 5.88.
[3] Aelian fr. 319 Domingo-Forasté (322 Hercher).
[4] Aelian fr. 326 Domingo-Forasté (328 Hercher: here abridged); cf. tau 235.
