Headword: Εὐθαρσῶς ἔπνει
Adler number: epsilon,3485
Translated headword: was breathing courageously
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Dexippus [writes]: "he, having placed every one of his opponents in second place, was breathing courageously from his experience."
Greek Original:
Εὐθαρσῶς ἔπνει: Δέξιππος: ὁ δὲ πάντα τὸν ἀνθιστάμενον τιθεὶς ἐν δευτέρῳ ἐκ τῆς πείρας εὐθαρσῶς ἔπνει.
Notes:
The same sentence (Dexippus FGrH 100 F37) is quoted with significant differences at alpha 3292. There, what serves as the headword phrase in this entry, εὐθαρσῶς ἐπνει , is rendered as εὐθαρσῶς ἐπῄει ("he attacked courageously"). Also, the phrase translated here as "from his experience" (ἐκ τῆς πείρας ) does not appear in the other entry.
On Dexippus, a third-century CE orator and historian, see generally delta 237.
