προδείσας, alarmed beforehand. Cp. Hdt. 7.50 “κρέσσον δὲ πάντα θαρσέοντα ἥμισυ τῶν δεινῶν πάσχειν μᾶλλον ἢ πᾶν χρῆμα προδειμαίνοντα μηδαμὰ μηδὲν παθεῖν.” No other part of προδείδω occurs: προταρβεῖν, προφοβεῖσθαι = “to fear beforehand,” but ὑπερ δέδοικά σου, I fear for thee, Soph. Ant. 82. In compos. with a verb of caring for, however, προό sometimes = ὑπέρ, e.g. “προκήδομαι” Soph. Ant. 741.
