Headword: Epepametha
Adler number: epsilon,2061
Translated headword: we had obtained
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] we had acquired. "All that we had obtained among the living I take with me as I go to Hades; I leave nothing under the sun."[1]
Greek Original:
Epepametha: ekektêmetha. panth' hosa ken zôiois epepametha, tauta par' haidan erchom' echôn: leipô d' ouden hup' êeliôi.
Same entry in ps.-Zonaras. The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given (its only independent occurrence).
[1] Leonidas of Tarentum, Greek Anthology 7.67.7-8 (an epitaph for Diogenes the Cynic: delta 1141, delta 1143, delta 1144). See Gow and Page (vol. I, 126); (vol. II, 367-368); and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 3638, beta 114, epsilon 3944, omicron 124, and pi 2073. Gow and Page (vol. I, 126) follow the Suda in reading the rare Doric headword (first person plural, pluperfect indicative middle) from pa/omai (I get, acquire); cf. LSJ s.v. (web address 1). They note that the Anthologia Palatina reads e)pepa/sme and that the Anthologia Planudea reads e)pepa/mme (ibid.); neither form is otherwise attested.
