Adler number: kappa,1250
Translated headword: having become weary
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning someone] becoming weary.[1]
Also [sc. attested] without a kappa [i.e. as kekmhw/s].[2]
In the Epigrams: "here Callimenes dedicates [them] to the laughter-loving Muses, having become weary by old age, in eyes and hands."[3]
Greek Original:
*kekmhkw/s: ka/mnwn. kai\ xwri\s tou= k. e)n *)epigra/mmasi: e)nqa/de *kallime/nhs filomh/desin a)/nqeto *mou/sais, gh/rai+ kekmhkw/s, o)/mmata kai\ pala/mas.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (see the references at Photius kappa531 Theodoridis): the unfamiliar first and second perfect participle (masculine nominative singular) of ka/mnw (LSJ entry at web address 1), kekmhkw/s, is glossed with the more familiar present. The headword is thought to be quoted from the Septuagint (4 Maccabees 4.8).
[2] See e.g. Homer, Iliad 23.232.
[3] The last two verses of Greek Anthology 6.66 (with filomeide/sin misspelt), attributed to Paul Silentarius. They describe the calligrapher's tools which Callimenes dedicates: stylus, ruler, stone, inkwell, sponge, reed-sharpener.
