Headword: Dedoika
Adler number: delta,163
Translated headword: I am afraid
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] I fear.[1]
"I am afraid lest some blow from the god may have come. For how could it be otherwise, if now that he has ceased [being sick] he is of no better cheer [than] while he was sick?"[1] Meaning how else could it be that something divine is not upon Ajax, if he has ceased his trouble and [yet] is in greater distress? "It is necessary for you to understand that these things are as they are." Because he is now worse off.
