Headword: Ἐπιθειάσας
Adler number: epsilon,2329
Translated headword: having appealed to the gods
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he] having marveled at, being open to the divine, being divinely inspired.[1]
Thucydides [writes]: "Archidamos, having appealed to the gods in certain ways, got his army ready for the war."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐπιθειάσας: ἐπιθαυμάσας, τὸ θεῖον εἰσδεδεγμένος, θεοφορούμενος. Θουκυδίδης: Ἀρχίδαμός τινα ἐπιθειάσας καθίστη ἐς τὸν πόλεμον τὸν στρατόν.
Notes:
[1] Thus far, cf. Hesychius epsilon4805, Lexica Sequeriana 229.19, Photius Lexicon epsilon1553 (cf.1551), Etymologicum Gudianum 504.2 (= Etymologicum Magnum 449.49, Lexicon Haimodein 624.8); and cf. theta 306. The glosses offered do not seem to fit the context of the quotation very well (contrast Hesychius epsilon4794, and scholia to Thucydides ad loc.; see next note) and they may have been produced originally for commentary on a different passage. For the verb, see also epsilon 2031, epsilon 2032, epsilon 2331.
[2] A loose approximation of Thucydides 2.75.1 (web address 1). For Archidamos cf. alpha 4108.
