Headword: Ἀθεσίαν
Adler number: alpha,722
Translated headword: fickleness
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] deviation.[1]
"For fearing the fickleness of the Celts, and the plots they were threatening".[2]
"The Romans had collectively calculated the fickleness of the Gauls".[3]
And elewhere Polybius [writes]: "to conceal from all their fickleness and instability".[4]
Greek Original:
Ἀθεσίαν: παραβασίαν. ἀγωνιῶν γὰρ τὴν ἀθεσίαν τῶν Κελτῶν, καὶ τὰς ἐπιβουλὰς τὰς καὶ ἐπισειομένας. οἱ δὲ Ῥωμαῖοι συλλογισάμενοι τὴν τῶν Γαλατῶν ἀθεσίαν. καὶ αὖθις Πολύβιος: ἐπικρύπτειν ἅπασι τὴν ἀθεσίαν αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν ἀβεβαιότητα.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius alpha457 Theodoridis. The headword, accusative singular, must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps, though not necessarily, any of the quotations given here, which the other lexica do not have.
[2] Polybius 3.78.2 (imperfectly quoted; for a better version see under alpha 334).
[3] Polybius 2.32.8 (again approximated rather than quoted).
[4] Polybius 15.24.6 (considerably garbled: it should read "to proclaim to all his...").
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history
