For it is said that Orpheus the Thracian was the first to prescribe the Greeks' mysteries. And honouring a god they called θρησκεύειν ["to worship"'], the invention being Thracian. Or from beholding god [θεὸν δερκεύειν ], which is to see [god].[2]
Greek Original:
Θρησκεύει: αἰτιατικῇ. θεοσεβεῖ, ὑπηρετεῖ τοῖς θεοῖς. λέγεται γὰρ ὡς Ὀρφεὺς Θρᾷξ πρῶτος τεχνολογῆσαι τὰ Ἑλλήνων μυστήρια. καὶ τὸ τιμᾶν θεὸν θρησκεύειν ἐκάλεσαν, ὡς Θρᾳκίας οὔσης τῆς εὑρέσεως. ἢ ἀπὸ τοῦ θεὸν δερκεύειν, ὅ ἐστιν ὁρᾶν.
