Headword: *ta\ *sami/wn u(popteu/eis
Adler number: tau,142
Translated headword: you’re suspecting what happened to the Samians
Vetting Status: high
This proverb[1] is spoken about those fearing certain irreparable betrayals of evils.[2] It came across from the atrocities that were wrought by the Athenians upon the Samians: for when they captured them, the Athenians killed some, and tattooed the others with the so-called Samê, which is a kind of Samian calamity;[3] in return for which the Samians, too, tattooed those of the Athenians that were subsequently captured.
