Adler number: epsilon,740

Greek Original:
*(ellanodi/kai: oi( kritai\ oi( kaqh/menoi ei)s tou\s a)gw=nas. *eu)na/pios: ou(/tw kai\ to/te o( me/gistos *(ellanodi/khs *gai+na=s to\n *(rwmai+ko\n o)/leqron h)qloqe/tei.
[1] See also epsilon 741. The headword is a Doric form, used also in Attic; the Attic-Ionic dialect form is e(llhnodi/kai, and the Elean is e(llanozi/kai. See LSJ s.v.
[2] Eunapius fr.79 FHG (4.49); again eta 154; and for Gainas see also pi 1939, esp. the note on him there. Given who he was, and the context generally, both Hellanodikes and the verb a)qloqetei=n are ironic metaphors.
