Headword: *sindarwneu/esqai
Adler number: sigma,453
Translated headword: to men-harm
Vetting Status: high
[sc. The term comes] from harming [sinesthai], which is damaging, men [andres].
Greek Original:
*sindarwneu/esqai: a)po\ tou= tou\s a)/ndras si/nesqai, o(/ e)sti bla/ptein.
Appendix Proverbiorum 4.71, attributing the verb to Pherekrates. (For the equation between si/nesqai and bla/ptein cf. sigma 456.) But Pherecrates fr. 230 Kock = 264 K.-A. is the neuter plural noun sinamwreu/mata, so the present headword is probably (LSJ) a corruption of sinamwreu/esqai.
Keywords: comedy; daily life; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; proverbs
