Νεμεσηθείς: μεμφθείς. νεμεσηθεὶς δ' ἀλόχῳ κατορχήσει βέλει τρωθεὶς λείπει τὸν βίον. Ἰώσηπος: παρεκάλει τὸν θεὸν νεμεσῆσαι μὲν ταῖς τῶν πολεμίων ἐλπίσιν, ἐλεῆσαι δὲ τὸν αὐτοῦ λαόν. καὶ αὖθις: εἰ δὲ νεμεσηθείην τῆς ἐπιβολῆς, ἴσθι με μὴ πταίσαντα παρ' ἐλπίδας.
[1] The headword (presumably extracted from the quotation which immediately follows) is the aorist passive participle, masculine nominative singular, of νεμεσάω ; cf. nu 153, nu 154, nu 156, nu 164.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (LSJ ignore the noun κατόρχησις , which occurs here only, but for its likely overtones, shown in the translation above, see there under the cognate verb κατορχέομαι .)
