Headword: Ἐπιτάφιον
Adler number: epsilon,2662
Translated headword: funeral
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"The blow itself was also a funeral encomium of his virtue".
Greek Original:
Ἐπιτάφιον: αὕτη ἡ πληγὴ καὶ τῆς ἀρετῆς αὐτῷ ἐπιτάφιον ἦν ἐγκώμιον.
Note:
The quotation is an elaborated version of a phrase in Theophylact Simocatta, Histories 2.6.3. The original has neither 'the blow' nor 'encomium', i.e. the present headword adjective is used there -- as commonly elsewhere (alpha 18, kappa 1356, etc) -- as if it were a noun.
Keywords: biography; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history; military affairs; rhetoric
