Headword: *)anei/moun toi=s do/rasin
Adler number: alpha,2381
Translated headword: they were hauling (each other) up with their spears
Vetting Status: high
Meaning they were dragging [each other] up.
Greek Original:
*)anei/moun toi=s do/rasin: a)nti\ tou= a)nei=lkon.
As Adler notes, the headword phrase derives from Xenophon, Anabasis 4.2.8 (a)ni/mwn a)llh/lous toi=s do/rasi), but omitting 'each other' and with the verb itself as the unparalleled a)nei/moun rather than a)ni/mwn -- correctly at alpha 2471 (and in Photius s.v.)
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history; military affairs
