[Meaning] not altogether, slowly, not at all. Sophocles [writes]: "since I would hardly have sent for you [into] my own house".[1]
Greek Original:
*sxolh=| g' a)/n: a)nti\ tou= ou)d' o(/lws, brade/ws, ou)damw=s. *sofoklh=s: e)pei\ sxolh=| s' a)\n oi)/kous tou\s e)mou\s e)steila/mhn.
The headword, extracted from the quotation, illustrates a specialised adverbial use of the noun sxolh/ (sigma 1802) in the dative case; see generally LSJ s.v., B.2, with other instances.
[1] Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 434, with scholion. The mss of both Sophocles and the Suda differ as to whether what precedes a)/n is g' (often part of this idiom: see LSJ) or s'; both are given here.
