[Meaning in both cases a] contest of horses. Just as "oath" [diomosia] and "affidavit" [antomosia] both obviously show the same thing.

= Photius, Lexicon delta584. For the same material see again alpha 2758, delta 1043, delta 1235. In all four Suda entries, as already in Photius, the point is unfortunately spoiled by a mis-spelling of one of the words, a)nqippasi/a. (There is no such word as a)nippasi/a.) For the anthippasia (the more usual term of the two), a mock cavalry battle, see Bugh (below) 59-60.
