"While he was still a child, he threw a stone at and killed his teacher Linus, who had directed blows at him in the classroom; [Heracles] was vexed and unwilling to take orders".
Greek Original:

The headword, evidently extracted from the quotation given, is the aorist active participle, masculine accusative singular, of the verb e)mba/llw (cf. epsilon 934, epsilon 936).
As to the quotation itself, Adler suggested Nicolaus of Damascus, and see now Favuzzi (cited under delta 404). Compare also Pausanias 9.29.9: Heracles kills his music teacher Linus the son of Ismenias; cf. lambda 568.
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; mythology
