Headword: *)anelei=n
Adler number: alpha,2248
Translated headword: to overturn; to take up
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to overthrow. "They insisted, through ambassadors, first that the anti-Megarian decree be overturned and the Greeks be left independent".[1]
*)anelei=n is also the term for taking up exposed babies and raising them;[2] and in short, whatever someone might take up.
"For, having overturned the law, it elected her"; Demosthenes says this in the [speech] Against Androtion;[3] but the quotation is transmitted in two forms, the one as written above, the other with au)th/n in the accusative instead of [dative] au(th|=.[4] And the one proffering the accusative has the following sort of rationale: having overturned this law, or indeed broken it, [the council] passed a vote about itself, [to the effect] that it should be crowned. But the [version] with dative [sc. must be understood differently]: having overturned this law, [the council] elected him for itself.[5]

[1] Diodorus Siculus 12.39.4 (paraphrased rather than quoted) on one of the grievances that led to the Peloponnesian War (431-404); cf. Thucydides 1.139.
[2] cf. alpha 2202 and alpha 2371.
[3] Demosthenes 22.20 (web address 1).. To understand the textual issue which now arises (cf. again alpha 4476), note that the feminine entity involved is the Athenian council (boule). See further in the notes below.
[4] Vice versa, in fact.
[5] The textual discrepancy here is at least as old as Harpokration s.v. Modern editors have favoured a third option, that of emending to the nominative (and placing a comma between tou=ton and to\n no/mon: "having overturned the law, [the Council] elected this man itself".
