Headword: *)anh/kei
Adler number: alpha,2405
Translated headword: approached, arrived
Vetting Status: high
Antiphon [sc. uses this word] to mean kaqh/kei ["came down to"],[1] whereas Amipsias said a)nh=ka ["I approached"] to mean a)nabe/bhka ["I have gone up"],[2] while Thucydides [uses] a)nh/kousin ["they arrived [sc. at death]"] meaning they died, they came to an end.[3] And Demosthenes [uses] a)nh/kontos ["belonging to"] to mean diafe/rontos ["pertaining to"].[4]
Also [sc. attested is] a)nh/kontes ["they approaching"], [meaning] they coming to. "In speaking ability not approaching a level where something great and brilliant from it could move crowds, but in austerity of life and moulding of their habits to moderation, of such ability that they too drew crowds around them which were not at all small."[5]
But a)nh=kon ["belonging to"] [means] proper to.

[1] Antiphon (the Sophist) 87 B 19 Diels-Kranz. Cited from Harpokration s.v., where however the gloss is slightly different: "to mean simple h(/kei."
[2] Amipsias fr. 31 Kock (30 K.-A.).
[3] Thucydides 3.45.3 (web address 1).
[4] Demosthenes 60.6 -- which in fact has neuter plural a)nh/konta, not the Suda's genitive singular a)nh/kontos (web address 2).
[5] For this quotation, on Eleusios and Marathonios, cf. epsilon 813 and kappa 991.
