Headword: *)/antikrus
Adler number: alpha,2674
Translated headword: right on, straight on
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] opposite, from an opposite position. The linguists and Apollodorus of Cyrene[1] and others say [it means] demonstrably. And indeed right through and directly and straightway and right away and surely and soundly and accurately and simply. But others say, I think more accurately, that when said with the sigma [i.e. a)/ntikrus] it clarifies what has been said, but without the sigma, i.e. a)ntikru/, it only [means] over against, and opposite from.
