ACCENSOR
idem cum Delatore. Glosi. Lat. Graec. Accensor, εἰσαγωγἐυς, εἰσηγητὴς, βούλαρχος. In Gloss. vero Graec. Lat. Εἰσκγωγἐυς est Lator, institutor. Ubi Car. du Fresne iudicat legendum Delator: quia apud Hesych. εἰσαγωγἐυς dicitur esse ἀρχὴ Α᾿θην´ῃσι τῶ τὰ ἐγκλήματα εἰσαγόνταν. Magistratus Athenis eorum, qui crimina deferebant. Postea translata vox, ad denotandum Acolythum, cui incumbit cura accendendi lumina in Ecclesia. Hesych. Δᾳδοῦχος, λυχνάπτης, λαμπαὸηφόρος: Graecis recentioribus κανδηλάπτης. Hinc apud Honorium Augustodunens. l. 3. c. 64. Acolythus, qui est accensor luminum, vide in você Acolythus, et pluta in hanc rem, apud Car. du Fresne Glossar.
