Headword: *ai)=ga
Adler number: alphaiota,21
Translated headword: goat
Vetting Status: high
This animal seems to be hostile to the vine.[1] At any rate there is evidently an epigram regarding the nanny-goat as follows: "Even if you eat me to the root, nevertheless I will still bear fruit enough to pour a libation when you are sacrificed, o goat."[2]
Greek Original:
*ai)=ga: o(/ti touti\ to\ zw=|on dokei= e)xqro\n ei)=nai th=| a)mpe/lw|. a)me/lei gou)=n kai\ e)pi/gramma fai/netai pro\s th\n ai)=ga ou(/tws e)/xon: kh)/n me fa/gh|s e)pi\ r(i/zan, o(/mws d' e)/ti karpoforh/sw o(/sson e)pilei=yai/ soi, tra/ge, quome/nw|.
The unglossed headword is accusative singular of ai)/c (alphaiota 235, alphaiota 236, alphaiota 237, alphaiota 238). Unless it is quoted from somewhere external, its case is presumably determined by th\n ai)=ga in the entry itself.
[1] Copied from here to alpha 1650.
[2] Greek Anthology 9.75 (with a different term for 'goat'); already at alpha 4177. (Both quotations of it have the wrong aorist infinitive, e)pilei=yai for what should be e)pispei=sai.)
