Adler number: delta,641

[Meaning] failure to hit the mark/achieve a goal.[1]

[1] (No equivalent entry in other lexica.) For the glossing see alpha 3591.
[2] Likewise in Anecdota graeca, ed. L. Bachmann, 195.8, and Photius s.v.; similarly in Hesychius (delta1144, delta1146). See also alpha 1496, alpha 1497. In the present entry the final (erroneous) phrase is lacking, Adler reports, in ms T. The form of the verb given is obviously aorist optative active, third person singular, of diamarta/nw (perhaps quoted from Plato, Phaedo 108A, though there are other possibilities); cf. alpha 1495, alpha 1494, delta 642, delta 645.
