Headword: *dia/fora
Adler number: delta,827
Translated headword: differences
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] expenses. Thucydides [uses the word].
Greek Original:
*dia/fora: a)nalw/mata. *qoukudi/dhs.
An attested meaning of the word dia/foros (see LSJ s.v., II.4.a), but there are no examples in Thucydides. Either, therefore, the name is wrong (and should instead be e.g. Demosthenes) or else a passage of Thucydides such as 6.62.2 has been misinterpreted, or -- as Theodoridis on Photius s.v. suggests -- the name belongs with delta 833 (q.v.).
