v. trans.

Exact: P. and V. πράσσειν, ἐκπράσσειν, εἰσπράσσεσθαι, P. εἰσπράσσειν, Ar. and P. πράσσεσθαι, ἀναπράσσειν. Take away: P. and V. ἐξαιρεῖσθαι, βίᾳ ἐξαιρεῖσθαι. Met., evoke (tears, etc.): P. and V. ἐκκαλεῖσθαι, V. ἐξάγειν (Eur., Supp. 770). Perchance this reproach may have slipped out, extorted from him by anger: V. ἀλλʼ ἦλθε μὲν δὴ τοῦτο τοὔνειδος τάχ’ ἂν ὀργῇ βιασθέν (Soph., O.R. 523).
