Headword: Δυσείκαστον
Adler number: delta,1626
Translated headword: hard to make out
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning something] unsuitably represented.
Greek Original:
Δυσείκαστον: ἀπρεπῶς εἰκασθέν.
The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular, evidently quoted from somewhere; perhaps Dionysius of Halicarnassus, On Thucydides 29, applying this term to Thucydides' phrase καὶ τὰ ἐφυστερίζοντά που (Thuc. 3.82.3).
The adjective features prominently in DH's critical vocabulary, esp. where Thucydides is concerned: see also On Thucydides 40 (on Thuc. 5.111), Lysias 4 (on Thucydides and Demosthenes in general terms), Second Letter to Ammaeus 3 (on Thucydides' choice of vocabulary).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; rhetoric
