Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Aeschines [uses this] to mean was killed.[1] From the blade [σπάθη ]. Alternatively, was cast out, or was cut through; or meaning was pressed together. From the weavers' blade, which presses the woof together.
Greek Original:
Ἐσπαθᾶτο: Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ κατ' Αἰσχίνου ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀπώλλυτο. παρὰ τὴν σπάθην. ἢ τὸ ἐρρίπτετο, ἢ διεκόπτετο: ἢ ἀντὶ τοῦ συνετίθετο. ἀπὸ τῆς τῶν ὑφαντῶν σπάθης, ἥτις συντίθησι τὰ ὑφαινόμενα.
An abridgement of Harpokration s.v., where it is clearer than it is here that two lines of interpretation are competing: σπάθη as sword and as weaving implement.
cf. delta 962, epsilon 3176, epsilon 3178; and see generally LSJ s.v. σπάθη (web address 1).
[1] Demosthenes 19.43.
