Adler number: pi,472
Translated headword: from this
Vetting Status: high
Meaning away from this. Also [sc. attested is] para\ tou=ton ["to this"], meaning pro\s tou=ton ["toward this"]. So Arrian [sc. uses these prepositions] everywhere.[1]
Greek Original:
*para\ tou/tou: a)nti\ tou= a)po\ tou/tou. kai\ para\ tou=ton, a)nti\ tou= pro\s tou=ton. ou(/tws pantaxou= *)arriano/s.
The entry illustrates two usages of the preposition para/ for indicating motion from or toward (the side of) something, with the genitive and accusative cases, respectively; cf. Smyth 1692.
[1] Oddly, this statement is listed by Roos (p. 289) as an actual fragment of Arrian: Fragmenta incerta 22. The lemma is identically glossed in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (pi320 Theodoridis) and Lexica Segueriana 331.3-4.
