Headword: Εὐθαρσῶς ἔπνει
Adler number: epsilon,3485
Translated headword: was breathing courageously
Vetting Status: high
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.
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.
