Headword: *)ale/gois
Adler number: alpha,1108
Translated headword: might you have a care for
Vetting Status: high
[sc. Meaning] might you succour, might you aid.[1]
"Might you also have a care for the man with respect to poverty".[2]
*)ale/gw also means I do not care.[3] And Homer [writes]: "I do not care, as if a woman were hitting me."[4]
Greek Original:
*)ale/gois: a)rh/gois, bohqoi/hs. a)le/gois d' a)ne/ri kai\ peni/h. *)ale/gw: shmai/nei kai\ to\ ou) fronti/zw. kai\ *(/omhros: ou)k a)le/gw, w(s ei)/ me gunh\ ba/lh|.
The headword might be extracted from the first quotation given, though ps.-Zonaras (see n. 1) does not give it, and in any event see n. 2.
[1] Similar glossing (second synonym only) in ps.-Zonaras.
[2] An approximation of Greek Anthology 6.245.6 (where "poverty" is in the accusative case, not nominative as here, and the verb in question is -- as suggested by Salmasius (Claude de Saumaise, 1588-1653); cf. Gow and Page, vol. II, 268 -- more probably a)le/kois "might you ward off"). The epigram, the sailor Diogenes's dedication of a promised object to one of the Kabeiroi (cf. kappa 6) during a storm at sea, is attributed to Diodorus; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 234-235; and vol. II, 267-268) and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 664, beta 390, lambda 183, and lambda 733.
[3] But only with the addition of a negative, as in the Homer passage about to be quoted. (The Suda has confused matters by presenting its scholion first.)
