Headword: *plh=ktai
Adler number: pi,1750
Translated headword: brawlers
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] warriors.[1] "There are good brawlers also/even amongst the Bakchaioi".[2]
Greek Original:
*plh=ktai: polemikoi/. ei)si\ de\ plh=ktai a)gaqoi\ kai\ para\ *bakxai/ois.
The headword is nominative plural, presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] cf. generally (e.g.) Plutarch, Philopoemen 9.3: plh=ktai kai\ ma/ximoi.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. NB: the proper name has been transmitted as Bakchaioi (unparalleled) but Adler notes Bernhardy's suggestion that it be emended to Bakkaioi (beta 45).
