Headword: Θεηπολεῖν
Adler number: theta,100
Translated headword: to minister in divine things

[Meaning] to wander about bearing images of the gods, exacting money.
Greek Original:
Θεηπολεῖν: θεῶν εἰκόνας ἔχοντα περιπολεῖν, ἀργύριον εἰσπρασσόμενον.
Note:
The headword is the present infinitive active of θεηπολέω , a poetic variant of θεοπολέω . Same hostile glossing in Timaeus's Platonic Lexicon, and in Photius and other lexica. Presumably generated by Plato, Laws 909D, where θεοπολεῖν is declared illegal in Magnesia.
