Greek display:    

Headword: *)enede/xonto
Adler number: epsilon,1220
Translated headword: they accepted
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they received, they admitted.[1] "They accepted Kinneas. And entering the city he sought to speak impressively about Pyrrhus."[2]
Greek Original:
*)enede/xonto: parela/mbanon, ei)sede/xonto. oi( de\ to\n *kinne/an e)nede/xonto. kai\ parelqw\n e)s th\n po/lin e)semnolo/gei peri\ *pu/rrou.
[1] The headword is imperfect, third person plural, of e)nde/xomai (cf. epsilon 1160, epsilon 1163), presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Valckenaer attributed this quotation to Polybius; Mai, to Cassius Dio; Gaisford associated it with delta 1478 (Aelian fr. 6 Hercher). With the aid of the TLG it can in fact be identified as a version of Appian, Samnitica 10.2 (on K. addressing the Roman senate): kai\ parelqw\n o( *Kine/as e)s to\ bouleuth/rion a)/lla te polla\ peri\ tou= basile/ws e)semnolo/gei ktl.
For King Pyrrhus of Epirus, in any event, cf. pi 3232; and 'Kinneas' (more properly spelled with single nu, like his namesake and ancestor kappa 1637) was one of his generals (see e.g. Plutarch, Pyrrhus 14-22 passim).
