Adler number: alpha,2807
Translated headword: praiseworthy
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] one who/which is worthy of commendations.
Greek Original:
Ἀξιεπαίνετος: ὁ ἄξιος ἐπαίνων.
LSJ s.v. notes this headword, ἀξιεπαίνετος , as a variant reading for ἀξιέπαινος in Xenophon Hellenica 4.4.6 -- which in fact has the feminine genitive singular, i.e. ἀξιεπαινοτάτης or ἀξιεπαινετωτάτης (referring, either way, to death). That that passage does lie behind the present entry is corroborated by Hesychius s.v. ἀξιεπαινότατος , glossed ἄξιος ἐπαίνου ; see Latte ad loc.
