Headword: Ἐκφρησθέντων
Adler number: epsilon,715
Translated headword: of those ordered out
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] of those thrown out. "[... that] with the Epicuruses ordered out of the city the priests purify the shrines."[1] "And they were immediately filled with great joy at his not being ordered out vilified and dishonored by the god."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐκφρησθέντων: ἐκβληθέντων. ἐκφρησθέντων δὲ τῶν Ἐπικούρων ἐκ τῆς πόλεως τοὺς ἱερεῖς ἐκκαθῆραι τὰ ἱερά. οἱ δὲ περιχαρείας αὐτίκα ὑπεπλήσθησαν τῷ μὴ ἐκφρησθῆναι ἐκφαυλισθέντα καὶ ἀτιμασθέντα ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ αὐτόν.
The headword and the initial gloss are aorist passive participles in the masculine (and neuter) genitive plural. This form of the headword appears (in a genitive absolute construction) in the first quotation; the aorist passive infinitive appears (as an articular infinitive) in the second.
[1] Paraphrase from a passage quoted at much greater length at epsilon 2405; attributed to Aelian (fr. 39 Hercher, 42a Domingo-Forasté). "Epicuruses" (Ἐπικούρων ) is not in the original quotation, and is probably a mistake for "Epicureans" (Ἐπικουρείων ), unless the paraphraser was under the impression that the passage referred not to the banishment of Epicureans but of "allies" (ἐπίκουροι ).
[2] Attributed to Aelian (fr.89 Hercher, 92i Domingo-Forasté). The same quotation also appears (misfiled) under epsiloniota 254; and cf. omicron 274.
