Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] he hated, he thought little of [sc. the Trojans].[1]
Homer [writes]: "he brought back much prudence".
Greek Original:
*kata\ de\ fro/nin h)/gage pollh/n: e)mi/shse, katefro/nhsen. *(/omhros: kata\ de\ fro/nin h)/gage pollh/n.
The headword phrase, repeated at the end of the entry, is Homer, Odyssey 4.258 (web address 1); also in phi 727 (q.v.).
[1] This glossing follows one of the possible explanations of the verse provided by the scholia thereto. These are that Odysseus (a) thought little of the Trojans' military power (here and in mss MVHQ of the scholia), (b) brought back important intelligence regarding the Trojans (ms E), or (c) acquired personal glory and fame (in all of these mss). To judge by the second gloss, katefro/nhsen, some commentator understood the adverb kata\ with the noun fro/nin rather than with the verb h)/gage.
