Headword: Ἀγγαρεία
Adler number: alpha,162
Translated headword: compulsory labour, corvee
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Surely "of pack mules".[1]
Also [sc. attested is] ἄγγαρος : [meaning] labourer, servant, porter; whence we speak of ἀγγαρεία [to describe] involuntary compulsion and service brought about by force.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἀγγαρεία: λίαν ἀγγάρων ἡμιόνων. καὶ Ἄγγαρος: ἐργάτης, ὑπηρέτης, ἀχθοφόρος: ὅθεν ἀγγαρείαν ἀνάγκην ἀκούσιον λέγομεν καὶ ἐκ βίας γινομένην ὑπηρεσίαν.
Notes:
For the (unglossed) headword, again under alpha 163, see generally LSJ s.v.; and cf. alpha 164, alpha 165 alpha 166.
[1] The force of λίαν is not self-evident here, but see generally LSJ s.v. (The remainder of the phrase might be a quotation, from Libanius, Oration 18.143.)
[2] Same or similar glossing in other lexica; references at Photius alpha94 Theodoridis.
