Translated headword: hunting
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they] seeking.[1] "And [they are] hunting an honour/price out of this from the others."[2]

Notes:
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is present middle participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb θηράω (cf. theta 357). As the gloss indicates, the middle voice of this verb can have the same sense as the active. (For present passive cf. epsilon 2095 = lambda 124.)
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as Cassius Dio 20.68.3.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history; imagery
