Headword: Ἐνιζάνει
Adler number: epsilon,1339
Translated headword: settles on
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"Following the tyrant by his tracks and into [the?] Orgon, he settles on pre-emptively seizing those of the plains both easily accessible and fit for horses".
Greek Original:
Ἐνιζάνει: ὁ δὲ κατ' ἴχνος ἑπόμενος τῷ τυράννῳ καὶ ἐς τὸν Ὀργῶνά ποτε ἐνιζάνει τῷ προκαταλαβεῖν τὰ εὐέφοδά τε καὶ ἱππήλατα τῶν πεδίων.
Notes:
The quotation, from which the headword is presumably extracted, is unidentifiable. For the verb cf. epsilon 1340.
The Suda text printed here by Adler has Ὀργῶνά ποτε ; however, as she noted, the version in ps.-Zonaras (favoured by Gaisford) is Ὀργῶνα ποταμόν , "into the river Orgon". (The ed. pr. opted for emendation: ἀγῶνά ποτε , "into a contest".) No such river is otherwise attested, though Stephanus of Byzantium registers an island "of Etruria" called Orgon.
