Headword: Ἐπικλάσωσιν
Adler number: epsilon,2380
Translated headword: they would bend
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] they would move to pity. "[...] in case, inclined to lamentation, they would bend the soldiers".[1]
Josephus [writes]: "resting on his achievements -- for they had learned [sc. about them] from him -- [and] bemoaning the slowness of the arrival".[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπικλάσωσιν: εἰς οἶκτον ἀγάγωσι. μὴ καὶ πρὸς ὀλοφυρμὸν τραπόμενοι τοὺς στρατιώτας ἐπικλάσωσιν. Ἰώσηπος: ὁ δὲ τοῖς ἔργοις ἐφεστώς, παρ' αὐτῷ γὰρ ἐμεμαθήκεσαν, βραδυτῆτα ἐπικαλέσας τῆς ἀφίξεως.
Notes:
See generally LSJ s.v. ἐπικλάω , II.
[1] Quotation (containing the unglossed and otherwise unattested headword) unidentifiable.
[2] An approximation of Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 18.314 (web address 1). The reference was not given by Adler, whose apparatus instead questioned the attribution ('Josephus?'). Nevertheless she did print the relevant aorist participle as ἐπικαλέσας (from mss FV, and in Josesphus), not ἐπικλάσας , and noted Hermann's opinion that this quotation should belong with epsilon 2382. See in brief C. Theodoridis in his Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXVIII.
