Headword: *)/efhbos
Adler number: epsilon,3890
Translated headword: adolescent, ephebe
Vetting Status: high
A Cilician saying: 'where are you running to? [Is it] against the adolescent?' It was said of Apollonius and it had the force of a proverb.[1]
The law allows only the free to become ephebes. It was necessary for the ephebe to have his right hand wrapped up in a mantle because of being free from work in deeds and words for the year, and [he was] not to put forth his hand. It was necessary for the one being an ephebe to be a native. The status of ephebe was a standard of an upright and sound life.[2]
