Headword: Δεκατεύειν
Adler number: delta,182
Translated headword: to tithe
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning to exact a tithe and to plunder. Property taken from enemies used to be tithed to the gods; hence, technically speaking, tithing is consecration, but as a metaphor a "tithe" [can be] anything taken and demanded.
Greek Original:
Δεκατεύειν: ἀντὶ τοῦ δεκάτην εἰσπράττεσθαι καὶ λαφυραγωγεῖν. τὰ δ' ἐκ τῶν πολεμίων ληφθέντα ἐδεκατεύοντο θεοῖς, διὸ κυρίως δεκατεῦσαι τὸ καθιερῶσαι, κατὰ μεταφορὰν δὲ καὶ τὸ δεκάτην ὁπωσοῦν λαβεῖν καὶ ἀπαιτῆσαι.
Notes:
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., an entry prompted by Demosthenes 22.77 (and also citing other oratory, and Didymus).
