Headword: Harmodioi
Adler number: alpha,3975
Translated headword: fitting
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning those who/which are] acceptable.[1]
And [there is] a saying: "Harmodios' song", in reference to difficult things. For the songs about Harmodios are like this.[2]
Harmodios and Aristogeiton attacked the tyrants, and Athenians killed Hippias.[3]
Greek Original:
Harmodioi: arestoi. kai paroimia: Harmodiou melos, epi tôn duskolôn. ta gar eis Harmodion melê toiauta estin. Harmodios kai Aristogeitôn epethento tois turannois, kai ton Hippian apekteinan Athênaioi.
The headword is masculine nominative plural of this adjective, presumably quoted from somewhere. (Hesychius glosses it in different words but along the same substantive lines.)
[1] This gloss treats the word in its metaphorical sense; it also meant literally things that fitted; cf. alpha 3976, and see LSJ s.v. (web address 1).
[2] (cf. epsilon 1384.) At alpha 493 we have been told that the songs are easy. For the discussion whether skolia were difficult or not, see LSJ s.v. sko/lion (web address 2).
[3] See Thucydides 1.20.2 (web address 3).
