Translated headword: newly
Vetting Status: high
When Homer says ne/on h(bw/onta ["newly in the prime of youth"] he does not mean young in age, but in relation,[1] as if recently attaining the prime of youth.
Greek Original:
*ne/on: *(/omhros ne/on h(bw/onta ou) le/gei ne/on kata\ h(liki/an, a)lla\ kata\ meso/thta, oi(=on newsti\ h(bw=nta.
From a scholion on Homer, Iliad 9.446, where the phrase occurs (see web address 1).
[1] *kata\ meso/thta seems (besides philosophical and medical usages) to be applied to adjectives used adverbially, as here ne/on modifies h(bw/onta; cf. Aristonicus on Iliad 14.418 (and maybe alpha 831).
