Adler number: kappa,1295
Translated headword: I bid, I order, I urge
Vetting Status: high
[Used] with a dative and [= or] with an accusative.[1] It is attested in Thucydides not only in reference to greater [sc. men], but also in reference to lesser.[2]
Greek Original:
*keleu/w: dotikh=| kai\ ai)tiatikh=|. ou)k e)pi\ meizo/nwn mo/non kei=tai para\ *qoukudi/dh|, a)lla\ kai\ e)p' e)latto/nwn.
[1] See LSJ s.v. for these usages.
[2] Expanded -- by making the second part explicit -- from the scholia to Thucydides 1.42.2 (speech of the Corinthians in Athens): the Corcyreans keleu/ousin the Athenians to do wrong. The thrust of the contrast is not immediately self-evident, but the general idea seems to be that keleu/ein can be used of persons without the authority to give commands, in a sense like "urge."
