Headword: *zugomaxei=n
Adler number: zeta,186
Translated headword: to battle the yoke
Vetting Status: high
[sc. The term comes] from those selling at a station and being at variance towards those buying. But others [sc. derive it] from the beasts of burden or oxen or horses or suchlike not working harmoniously. Hesiod [writes]: "and get two male oxen of nine years, for their strength is not feeble [...] The pair of them would not fight [in the furrow]."[1] But Herodotos [says that] the phrase can be from those pairs on the ships, whenever the rowers are at variance with regard to their seats.[2]
Look for pillar of the yoke-bearer under 'basilica'.[3]

[1] Hesiod, Works and Days 436-9, here abridged.
[2] Nothing like this is extant in Herodotus, so the name must be an error. Adler notes the suggestions 'Herodianos' (Peter Wesseling) and 'Herodoros' (Henricus Stephanus, a.k.a. Henri √Čtienne).
[3] beta 157 (where no mention of this pillar is found, unless the elephant-statue is meant).
