Adler number: alpha,1188
Translated headword: each other
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning themselves. Thus Euripides [sc. uses the word].[1] And Thucydides [writes]: "there some even tasted each other".[2] Meaning [ate] themselves.
Greek Original:
Ἀλλήλων: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἑαυτῶν. οὕτως Εὐριπίδης. καὶ Θουκυδίδης: καί πού τινες ἀλλήλων ἐγεύσαντο. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἑαυτῶν.
Notes:
Same entry in Photius (Lexicon alpha998 Theodoridis) and elsewhere.
[1] This refers to Euripides, Supplices 676, according to Theodoridis (following Naber). Adler had cited Euripides fr. 1124 Nauck, but that instance is dubious.
[2] An approximation of Thucydides 2.70.1, on the siege of Poteidaia (web address 1); cf. epsilon 53. In Thucydides the verb is the pluperfect ἐγέγευντο "they had tasted."
