[sc. An epithet of] Athena,[1] [meaning] she [who is] strong in wars.
"[...] under the roof of the temple of Pallas mighty in battle".[2]
Greek Original:
Alkimachê: hê Athêna, hê en polemois krataia. nêon huporrophias Pallados alkimachas.
The headword is perhaps generated by the epigram quoted, though not demonstrably so; ps.-Zonaras (next note) does not have it, and in any case the epigram has a Doric-dialect version.
[1] Likewise in ps.-Zonaras.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.124.2 (Hegesippus), the dedication of a shield to Athena, quoted also at alpha 656 and tau 594; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (104), vol. II (299), and a further excerpt from this epigram at kappa 1254. The epigram reads naw=| (dative) u(pwrofi/a. Gow and Page suggest (ibid.) that the headword, which occurs in the genitive in the epigram, might have been Athena's cult-title in this particular temple.
