Adler number: delta,1655

Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] at the end of [one's] existence.
Greek Original:
Δυσμαῖς βίου: τῷ τέλει τῆς ζωῆς.
Notes:
Same entry in Hesychius (delta2605) and elsewhere, including Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon. The headword phrase is probably quoted from Plato, Laws 770A (even though 'life' has the definite article there); other instances and parallels in LSJ s.v. δυσμή , I, and add e.g. Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 8.12.34.
For the sun's setting(s) see epsilon 3468, sigma 6.
Keywords: daily life; definition; historiography; imagery; philosophy
