Headword: *trofh/
Adler number: tau,1061
Translated headword: nourishment
Vetting Status: high
Meaning guidance and education. Also [sc. attested is] 'nourished, meaning [something] guided, educated. But sometimes it is also [used] similarly to us. Plato [in ?a passage?] of Republic [writes]: "with some of the third [parts of the soul] we desire the things related to nourishment and reproduction."[1] For he calls food and drink 'nourishment', and sexual matters 'reproduction'. And in the third [book] of Republic [he writes]: "and [he] has been nourished by the most wise Chiron".[2] Meaning [he] has been educated; in order to not contradict Homer, who says that Achilles has been 'educated' by Chiron, not that he has been 'nourished'.
On nourishment, search under 'of an equal banquet'.[3]

[1] See Plato, Republic 4.436A. (Adler's apparatus diffidently proposes 'in [book] 4 of Republic'.) The Platonic passage, which is slightly modified in the lexicographers' version (Plato, more explicitly, says "we desire both the pleasures related to nourishment -- or food - and reproduction"), introduces the issue of the tripartite model of the soul, on which see Price 1995: chapter 2, especially 57-67.
[2] Plato, Republic 3.391C.
[3] See delta 128, delta 132, and lambda 33. The expression 'of an equal banquet' (daito\s e)i/shs) is taken from Homer, who uses it a number of times (Iliad 1.468, 1.602, 2.431, 4.48, 7.320, 9.225, 15.95, 23.56, 24.69; 9.225).
