[Meaning] the [female person] reared together with. "Verily, I suppose, familiar to an ancient day and to grey old age, his mother [will hear] him." Meaning truly, I suppose, she to the ancient day -- that is, to the ancient time -- familiar, [his] mother.
Greek Original:
Ἔντροφος: ἡ ἐντεθραμμένη. ἦ που παλαιᾷ μὲν ἔντροφος ἡμέρᾳ λευκῷ τε γήρᾳ μάτηρ νιν. ἀντὶ τοῦ ὄντως που ἡ τῇ παλαιᾷ ἡμέρᾳ, τουτέστι τῷ παλαιῷ χρόνῳ ἔντροφος μήτηρ.
Sophocles, Ajax 622-5, a lyric passage (web address 1), with scholia, from which the present entry is derived.
Oddly, no explanatory periphrasis or synonym is substituted for the headword ἔντροφος (some editions print Nauck's emendation to σύντροφος ) in the paraphrase given. The main substantive difference between the actual quotation and the paraphrase, apart from word order, is the substitution of ὄντως ('truly') for the original ('verily').
