Headword: *)analamba/nein
Adler number: alpha,1930
Translated headword: to gather up
Vetting Status: high
[Used] with an accusative.[1] In reference to lifting up.
Philosophers[2] used to take care also to gather up their clothing in an orderly fashion, and they mocked those who did not do this. Plato in Theaetetus [writes]: "those who are able to perform all services sharply and smartly, but who do not know how to gather up [sc. their clothing] in a gentlemanly left-to-right manner, or to take up a harmony of words to praise the gods."[3] But concerning clothing Alexis speaks as follows: "for this one thing I consider to be among those unbecoming to gentlemen: to walk without rhythm in the streets, when it is possible [to walk] nobly. No tax is levied for this -- on us, I mean -- and we do not have to bestow an honour to receive it from others; rather, it brings a certain quota of repute to those who use it, and pleasure to those who see it, and order to life. Who with any claim to sense would not [wish to] win it for himself?."[4]
[Also attested is] a)nalamba/nein, meaning to refresh/restore. Appian [writes]: "then someone went at a run to show [this] to the Persian as he was bathing himself and refreshing his body. He sprang out of the water, shouting that he might be taken before the battle."[5]

[1] Likewise in syntactical lexica.
[2] Here begins material taken from Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.21B-D (1.38 Kaibel); it includes the quotations from Plato and Alexis. The opening verb is the impersonal e)/mele, not (as here) e)/melle.
[3] An approximation of Plato, Theaetetus 175E (web address 1 below), again at epsilon 2288; in both contexts e)pidecieleuqe/rws is a false reading.
[4] Alexis fr. 263 Kock, now 265 K.-A.
[5] Appian, Macedonica 15.
