Headword: *frukto/s
Adler number: phi,757
Translated headword: beacon
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Also[1] [sc. attested is] parafruktwreuomenos ["he who is sending improper beacon-signals"]. Those misbehaving when on guard and spreading beacons hostile to those who have put their trust in the guards, to the advantage of the opposing forces, are said to be making improper beacon-signals, as Lysias says: "the elder of these was caught in Sicily, by Lamachus, making improper beacon-signals to the enemy, and was plank-executed".[2]
Strictly speaking [the verb] phryktorein means what is spread by fire-signals.[3]
