Translated headword: slave-dealer, slave-seller
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] trafficker of [= in] slaves.
The foot in men is called a)ndra/podon [literally "man-foot"], on the principle of the part being subordinate to the whole; for the slave is subordinate to the master, just as the foot to the whole body above it.[1]
"Just as, I think, the more untrustworthy of the slaves wait a long time for an opportunity to escape from the hand of their owners and find some masters who are new and unfamiliar to them."[2]
So[3] an a)ndrapodoka/phlos [is what we call] the slave-merchant; from dealing in slaves, that is selling them.
