Headword: Ἀνάρπαστοι
Adler number: alpha,2054
Translated headword: non-initiates
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the uninitiated, for whom there have been no rites or orgies.
Greek Original:
Ἀνάρπαστοι: οἱ ἀμύητοι, οἷς τελεταὶ καὶ ὄργια οὐκ ἐγένοντο.
Note:
The transmitted headword ἀνάρπαστοι , a nominative plural, does occur (in e.g. Theophrastus, De pietate fr. 3) but is nevertheless incorrect here. It should be ἀνοργίαστοι , which Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon gives as the headword to the present gloss; and that in turn is presumably generated by the accusative plural in [Plato], Epinomis 985D.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; philosophy; religion
