Headword: *(/eteron
Adler number: epsilon,3292
Translated headword: one thing, one of two things
Vetting Status: high
Homer [writes]: "[he] who hides one thing (e(/teron) in his mind and says something else (a)/llo)". Here it seems that there is a confusion about the two. For it should have been "says another", with the one being distinguished from the other. For the [word] a)/llos[1] is applied to more things [sc. than two].[2] But they argue plausibly that the [word] e(/teron is applied to [things] of the same type.
