[Meaning he] having been hidden, having been covered;[1] "but he, having sunk into every Odysseian and tangled scheme, was sent to Gaianas."[2]
Greek Original:
*katadu/s: katakrubei/s, katakalufqei/s: o( de\ katadu\s e)s pa=san *)odu/sseion kai\ polu/plokon mhxanh\n diepe/mpeto pro\s *gai+a/nan.
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is an intransitive aorist participle of katadu/nw, masculine nominative singular; cf. kappa 538, kappa 540.
[2] Bernhardy attributed this quotation to Eunapius; cf. omicron 63 (not Adler's '163', which she later corrected). The name Gaianas is attested as that of a rival to Theodosius for the patriarchate of Alexandria in 535: see James Allan Evans' DIR entry for the empress Theodora at web address 1.
