Adler number: alpha,2019

Vetting Status: high
[To fall back] is the word for being despondent among the ancients. To fall back is [properly applied to][1] the heart, as being despondent, being neglectful.[2] But Cratinus uses this term for rowers, rowing and reclining.[3]
Also [sc. attested is] a)napesei=n,[4] [meaning] to recline.

See also alpha 2018. The source for both is Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.23B (1.42 Kaibel). See further below, nn.1-2.
[1] Athenaeus has this adverb, kuri/ws.
[2] So the Suda mss, o)ligwrei=n; but o)ligodranei=n (Athenaeus), "to be feeble", looks better.
[3] Cratinus fr. 345 Kock, now 332 K.-A.
[4] The same verb, but aorist infinitive rather than present.
