They say that days [were made profane] in reference to someone's death; as if they were reckoned as not sacred [i(era/s] but profane [o(si/as].
Greek Original:
*(osiwqh=nai h(me/ras le/gousin e)pi\ qana/tw| tino/s: oi(=on mh\ i(era/s, a)lla\ o(si/as nomisqh=nai.
From Photius, Lexicon omicron556 Theodoridis. The word picked out to serve as headword is aorist passive infinitive of o(sio/w. (On the opposition between o(/sios and i(ero/s, see LSJ s.v.; also omicron 687, and cf. omicron 688.)
Theodoridis notes (without positively endorsing) Dindorf's suggestion that the entry stems from Xenophon, Hellenica 3.3.1 on the aftermath of the death of King Agis of Sparta in c.400 BCE: e)pei\ de\ w(siw/qhsan ai( h(me/rai, ktl.
