Headword: Ἁμαρτάδας
Adler number: alpha,1492
Translated headword: sins
Vetting Status: high
From the nominative [sc. singular] ἁμαρτάς .[1]
Procopius [writes]: "the sins of women do not fall upon their husbands alone, but also especially on their sons; at any rate the latter carry a certain reputation, too, from the fact that it generally happens that they resemble their mothers in character."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἁμαρτάδας: ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτὰς εὐθείας. Προκόπιος: αἱ τῶν γυναικῶν ἁμαρτάδες οὐκ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἄνδρας ἵενται μόνον, ἀλλὰ καὶ παίδων ἅπτονται μᾶλλον, οὕς γε καὶ δόξαν τινὰ φέρεσθαι ἐκ τοῦ ἐπιπλεῖστον συμβήσεται, ὡς φύσει τρόπου ταῖς γειναμέναις ἐοίκασιν.
[1] The headword itself is accusative plural, presumably quoted from somewhere -- other than the quotation given, where it is nominative plural. Perhaps, as suggested by Latte on Hesychius s.v., Herodotus (8.140.a1 & b4). See also alpha 1497.
[2] Procopius, Secret History 2.10.
