Headword: Ἁμαρτάδας
Adler number: alpha,1492
Translated headword: sins
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
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.
Notes:
[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.
