Adler number: epsilon,1481
Translated headword: before (the) seventh
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
At Athens it was forbidden to lead out an army before [the] seventh.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐντὸς ἑβδόμης: Ἀθήνησιν ἀπείρητο ἐντὸς ἑβδόμης στρατιὰν ἐξάγειν.
Notes:
cf. Zenobius 3.79; Hesychius epsilon3383; Photius, Lexicon epsilon1039.
Such a stipulation is otherwise unattested. (Photius says the reason for it had been given in Callimachus' Aitia.) For the preposition ἐντός in this sense see LSJ s.v.
[1] sc. day of the month: explicit in Hesychius, Zenobius and Photius. (Contrast e.g. Plutarch, Marius 17.11, where ἐντὸς ἐβδόμης ἡμέρας refers to the tribune Aulus Pompeius dying 'within a week'.)
