Headword: Ἀγόνων χοῶν
Adler number: alpha,297
Translated headword: [than] unfruitful drink-offerings
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
It is used in two ways.[1]
The Theologian says [this]; that is, [more pious] than the offerings which are poured for the dead and are therefore unfruitful.[2]
Also [sc. attested is] ἀγονία , barrenness.[3]
"That Artemis was angered and that she attacked with sterility of the earth as punishment."[4]
Greek Original:
Ἀγόνων χοῶν. διφορεῖται ὁ Θεολόγος φησί: τουτέστι τῶν ἐπὶ τοῖς νεκροῖς χεομένων καὶ διὰ τοῦτο ἀγόνων. καὶ Ἀγονία, ἡ ἀφορία. τὴν Ἄρτεμιν μηνίσαι καὶ μετελθεῖν δικαιοῦσαν αὐτὴν γῆς ἀγονίᾳ.
Notes:
[1] This comment (a single word in the Greek; in ms A only, Adler reports) perhaps refers to the active and passive senses of the adjective ("not bearing" and "not born"): see LSJ entry at web address 1, and again at alpha 337.
[2] Scholion on Gregory of Nazianzus (PG 36.378b), who does use the headword phrase.
[3] See already alpha 295.
[4] Aelian fr. 49d Domingo-Forasté (46 Hercher); cf. delta 1079.
