Headword: Ἀδηλώσας
Adler number: alpha,460
Translated headword: having disguised, having obfuscated
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he] having made [someone or something] unrecognizable.
"Having disguised himself with a dirty cloak and taken a scythe as a worker on the land would [sc. wear/carry ...]."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἀδηλώσας: ἀγνώριστον ποιήσας. ὁ δὲ ἀδηλώσας ἑαυτὸν πιναρᾷ στολῇ καὶ λαβὼν δρέπανον ὡς ἂν γῆς ἐργάτης.
Notes:
The headword is aorist active participle (masculine nominative singular) of the verb ἀδηλόω . It is probably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotation which follows.
[1] Quotation not identified by Adler, beyond the suggestion that it be attributed to Aelian. In fact Favuzzi [see under alpha 1518] 53-54, citing earlier work by Bruhn and others, plausibly regards it as the first half of a passage of Aelian (about Kodros) that continues at chi 208 (q.v.).
