Headword: Ἀναξιοπαθοῦντες
Adler number: alpha,1990
Translated headword: being indignant at unworthiness
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they] considering [something] not worthy.[1]
"Being indignant at unworthiness, the Cretans did not accept him, on the basis that he was seduction-born."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἀναξιοπαθοῦντες: οὐκ ἄξιον ἡγούμενοι. οἱ δὲ Κρῆτες ἀναξιοπαθοῦντες οὐκ ἐδέξαντο αὐτὸν ὡς μοιχογέννητον.
Notes:
[1] Masculine nominative plural of this present participle (already at alpha 1983, q.v.), presumably from the quotation which follows.
[2] Adler suggested Aelian as the source of this quotation; in fact it comes from Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus, On Virtues and Vices 3.4 (on the Minotaur). See further Favuzzi 53.
