Headword: Σκοταῖος
Adler number: sigma,673
Translated headword: in darkness
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[In darkness] (while it was dark) coming.
"Coming in darkness the soldiers saw the bodies and put coverings on them in the Babylonian manner, one man a doublet, one a cloak, one breadcrumbs, one hard fruits; and a great total of small fragments was collected."[1]
"Those who came up later in the darkness were making camp [as each group happened to find themselves]."[2]
Greek Original:
Σκοταῖος [ἔτι σκοτίας οὔσης] ἐλθών. οἱ δὲ στρατιῶται ἐλθόντες σκοταῖοι εἶδον τὰ σώματα καὶ νόμῳ τῶν Βαβυλωνίων ἐπέρριψαν αὐτοῖς, ὁ μὲν κάνδυν, ὁ δὲ χλαμύδα, ὁ δὲ ψωμούς, ὁ δὲ ἀκρόδρυα: καὶ μέγα κεφάλαιον ἠθροίσθη μικρῶν κερματίων. οἱ δὲ ὕστεροι σκοταῖοι προσιόντες ηὐλίζοντο.
Notes:
The headword phrase (which incorporates its own gloss) is in the masculine nominative singular. It is presumably quoted from somewhere in this form, or generated by such a quotation; cf. e.g. Xenophon, Hellenica 4.5.18, ἔτι σκοταῖος παρῆλθεν .
