Sophocles [writes]: "see the concubine of Ajax, who was the mightiest man of the army, [see] what menial tasks she tends to instead of such a honour!"
Greek Original:
*zh=los: *sofoklh=s: i)/de th\n o(meune/tin *ai)/antos, o(\s me/giston i)/sxuse stratou=, oi(/as latrei/as a)nq' oi(/ou zh/lou tre/fei.
Sophocles, Ajax 501-503, quoted again at iota 42 and lambda 146.
The headword, extracted from the quotation, illustrates one of the recognized meanings of the noun zh=los (for which see also zeta 57). This sense, #II in LSJ, is otherwise attested mainly in Demosthenes: see e.g. 18.120.
