Adler number: beta,440
Translated headword: to be starving
Vetting Status: high
The [same term as] with us.[1] But Xenophon says "to be starving" when the stomach is eating itself with hunger.
"Going to the yoke beasts, if he ever saw some food he gave it to those who were starving."[2]
"And when it is winter the experience of being starving falls upon labourers and flocks and men, either because of the cooling of the heat, or the piercing and sharp wind of settling winter comes and cuts the body and destroys the remitting heat outside again."[3]
