Headword: Ἐνέκρινον
Adler number: epsilon,1231
Translated headword: they used to approve, they used to reckon among
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] they used to count [something] among good things; like they used to exclude [ἀπέκρινον ], [meaning] they used to reject after scrutiny.[1]
Aelian [writes]: "when [the] Romans were waging war they used not to approve or to reject any place [sc. a priori], but wherever they happened [to be], they fought."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐνέκρινον: τοῖς καλοῖς συνηρίθμησαν: ὡς ἀπέκρινον, ἀπεδοκίμαζον. Αἰλιανός: Ῥωμαῖοι πολεμοῦντες οὐδένα τόπον οὔτε ἐνέκρινον οὔτε ἀπέκρινον, ἀλλ' ἔνθα ἔτυχον, ἠγωνίζοντο.
Notes:
[1] The headword verb (for which cf. already epsilon 127) is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Aelian fr. 123a Domingo-Forasté (part of 120 Hercher); cf. alpha 3116.
