Headword: Huparchôn
Adler number: upsilon,161
Translated headword: beginning
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one who is] initiating first. "As [someone] not beginning [sc. a quarrel], but being avenged."[1] And u(pa/rxein means not simply being, but being long ago, and to come first, to anticipate. Menander [writes]: "not for having been invited ought you to be well-inclined toward you;[2] rather, this [frame of mind ought] to exist."[3]
Greek Original:
Huparchôn: prokatarchôn. hôs ouch huparchôn, alla timôroumenos. kai to huparchein ouch haplôs to einai sêmainei, alla to palai einai, kai proeinai, phthanein. Menandros: ouchi paraklêthentas humas dei gar humin eunoein, alla huparchein touto.
The headword is the present active participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb u(pa/rxw; cf. e.g. omega 237, upsilon 433, pi 595, pi 634, pi 635. Same entry in Photius (upsilon79 Theodoridis) and elsewhere.
[1] Here Adler attributes this to Aristarchus [alpha 3893] fr.4 Nauck (p.729); but cf. omega 237, where the line is attributed to Chaeremon [chi 170]. The reference is TGrF 71 F3; cf. Theodoridis.
[2] Adler prints the transmitted u(mi=n, 'toward you', but notes in her apparatus the surely correct view (orthodox since Tyrwhitt and Porson) that it has to be emended to h(mi=n, 'toward us'.
[3] Menander fr. 927 Kock, 580 K.-A. (Edmonds p.800).
