[Of an admirable] death.
Greek Original:
Agastou: thanatou.
The unanimous reading of the mss for the gloss, qana/tou, is shared with Zonaras p.14 Tittmann and Eudemus (according to Adler's apparatus). Other sources (Photius; Bachmann, Anecdota graeca I p.7, 21) have the more comprehensible qaumastou=, "wondrous" (cf. alpha 173). Tittmann proposes a)ga/stou qana/tou qaumastou=. However, the enigma of the present entry was probably solved by Richard Porson (1759-1808), who noted that a)gasto/s and qa/natos appear in close proximity at Xenophon, Hellenica 2.3.56; see web address 1. (When death was hanging over him, Theramenes, in the view of Xenophon, said something admirable.) It may therefore be that an illustrative quotation here has been accidentally disassembled.
