Headword: Δόξης
Adler number: delta,1372
Translated headword: glory
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"Those who were with Fabius, after crying aloud, no longer produced deeds of glory but of war".[1]
Greek Original:
Δόξης: οἱ δὲ σὺν τῷ Φαβίῳ μέγα ἐκβοήσαντες οὐκέτι δόξης ἀλλὰ πολέμου ἔργα παρείχοντο.
Notes:
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is genitive singular of the feminine noun δόξα (delta 1362, delta 1663, delta 1364, delta 1365, delta 1367, delta 1368).
[1] This quotation was left unidentified by Adler, but latterly Favuzzi [see under alpha 1596] 199-200 finds vocabulary-based grounds for attributing it to Dionysius of Halicarnassus. As regards the 'Fabius' in it, Favuzzi notes that the only Fabius mentioned otherwise in DH is Q. Fabius Maximus Rullianus (phi 3: cos. 322, 310, 308, 297, 295), but of course there are other possibilities. For μέγα ἐκβοήσαντες cf. Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews 8.219.
