Headword: Ἐκθυμία
Adler number: epsilon,452
Translated headword: eagerness
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] readiness.[1]
"When he took the measure of their eagerness for battle against the enemy, he cut their throats."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐκθυμία: ἡ προθυμία. ἐπεὶ δ' ἔλαβε καιρὸν τῆς ἐκείνων ἐκθυμίας κατὰ τὴν μάχην πρὸς τοὺς πολεμίους, παρέσφαξεν αὐτούς.
Notes:
[1] An uncommon noun in all periods (and not attested before Polybius), glossed by a common one; cf., for adverbs, epsilon 453. The present headword is derived from θυμός "heart, spirit," and the prefix ἐκ "out of, from."
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
Keywords: biography; definition; ethics; historiography; military affairs
