Headword: Αὐτομόλως
Adler number: alpha,4510
Translated headword: deserter-like
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] traitorously.[1]
And [the related verb] αὐτομολῆσαι ["to desert"] is to betray one's own men and to give up and to go over to the enemy in alliance.[2]
But αὐτόμολος ["deserter"] [is] one who seeks protection.[3]
Greek Original:
Αὐτομόλως: προδοτικῶς. καὶ Αὐτομολῆσαί ἐστι τὸ προδοῦναι τοὺς ἰδίους καὶ ἐᾶσαι καὶ ἀπελθεῖν πρὸς τοὺς ὑπεναντίους ἐπὶ συμμαχίᾳ. Αὐτόμολος δὲ ὁ πρόσφυξ.
Notes:
[1] The headword adverb has the same or similar glossing in other lexica. It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps, as Latte on Hesychius s.v. claims, Sophocles (fr. 691).
[2] See also eta 652.
[3] This noun and its gloss are reversed at pi 2849.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; military affairs; tragedy
