Headword: *thna/llws
Adler number: tau,513
Translated headword: otherwise [than should be], aimlessly
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] in vain.[1] And ou) thna/llws ["not otherwise"] is what is said with a negation. But Philemon in Night [writes]: "the child [or: slave] goes around aimlessly holding the basket."[2] It is also [used] by those associated with Demosthenes[3] and in Plato's Theaetetus.[4]
"But as they heard words that these matters were otherwise, they retired back to agreement with Zeno."[5]

Notes:
The first and principal paragraph of this entry is also in Photius (tau257 Theodoridis); see also the other references there.
[1] The headword stems from the phrase th\n a)/llws; see LSJ s.v. a)/llws, II.3. Same or similar glossing in other lexica and grammars.
[2] Philemon fr. 51 Kock (54 K.-A.).
[3] Such a phrase, here as elsewhere, is simply a periphrasis for Demosthenes himself. In Demosthenes th\n a)/llws (two words) occurs four times: 3.21, 19.181, 19.336, and (missed by Theodoridis) Exordia 43.2.
[4] Plato, Theaetetus 172E; see also Laws 650A.
[5] Attributed to Malchus by Bernhardy; now Malchus fr. 29 Cresci.
