Headword: *)empodw/n
Adler number: epsilon,1034
Translated headword: in the way

Antiphon [sc. uses the word to mean] those at hand. For he says: "you punished those in the way".[1]
"[...lest] he should be in the way of our not hauling out the goddess;" [so writes] Aristophanes.[2] The "not" [is] superfluous: for he would have done enough to say "in the way". But they do use such [an idiom] as this, in which the "not" seems to be superfluous, as also in such [phrases] as "I forbid you not to go in".[3]

For this headword see already epsilon 1032, epsilon 1033. The present entry begins with material from Harpokration s.v.
[1] Antiphon fr. 3 Sauppe.
[2] Aristophanes, Peace 315 (web address 1), with scholion. The scholiast is discussing the normal use of 'not' in clauses of prevention. The 'not' has been retained in the translation of the quotation and the scholiast's example to make these comments clear, although normal English idiom would omit it.
[3] For this verb see generally (the present point is not made) alpha 2867.
