Headword: Ὑπεκίνει
Adler number: upsilon,187
Translated headword: was urging on
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] was turning [them] aside.[1]
"At first [he?] was urging them on in their opinions, then led them into much unintelligent conversation."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὑπεκίνει: παρέτρεπε. πρῶτον μὲν ὑπεκίνει αὐτοῖς τὰς γνώμας, ἔπειτα ἐς λαλιὰν πολλὴν καὶ ἀνόητον προῆγεν.
[1] The headword -- presumably extracted from the quotation given -- is imperfect, third person singular, of the verb ὑποκινέω ; see also under delta 1012. The present gloss does not seem to fit it very well.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
