Headword: Ἐγγυώμεθα
Adler number: epsilon,170
Translated headword: we guarantee, we pledge ourselves
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] we reply.[1]
But I pledge myself [ἐγγυῶμαι ] to you [means] I reply [sc. to you].[21]
Greek Original:
Ἐγγυώμεθα: ἀντιφωνοῦμεν. Ἐγγυῶμαί σοι δὲ ἀντιφωνῶ.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in ps.-Zonaras and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword is first person plural, middle, of ἐγγυάω . It must be quoted from somewhere, very probably -- as it is surprisingly rare -- from Demosthenes 20.100 or 137; cf. ps.-Aristides, Ars rhetorica 1.4.2.2.
[2] (A marginal addition in ms M, Adler reports.) First person singular middle of the same verb.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; law; rhetoric
