Headword: *)apepli/cato
Adler number: alpha,3031
Translated headword: trotted off, strode off
Vetting Status: high
Aristophanes in Acharnians [writes]: "he would not have trotted off lightly."[1] Meaning escaped easily and nonchalantly and got away. For pli/c ["trot"] [is] a pace; and pli/gmata [are] leaps. Whence also [we find] "astride" [expressed by] a)mfipli/c in Sophocles in Triptolemos.[2] And Homer [writes]: "well did they gallop, well did they stride with their feet."[3] But they used to say pli/ca also of the distance from the thumb to the forefinger. Also the bone between the thighbones.[4]
