Headword: Ἐξάρχοντες
Adler number: epsilon,1568
Translated headword: beginning
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning they] singing.[1] "The Trojans, beginning paeans with clamour and joy [...]."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐξάρχοντες: ᾄδοντες. οἱ δὲ Τρῶες μετὰ θορύβου καὶ ἡδονῆς παιᾶνας ἐξάρχοντες.
Notes:
[1] The headword is present participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb ἐξάρχω (cf. epsilon 1561, epsilon 1562). It is probably extracted from Homer, Iliad 18.606 ( = Odyssey 4.19), where the phrase μολπῆς ἐξάρχοντες was much quoted (Athenaeus, Dionysius of Halicarnassus, etc.etc.).
[2] Quotation unidentifiable (though Adler tentatively suggested Nicolaus of Damascus; cf. omicron 172).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; historiography; meter and music; poetry
