Headword: Ἐπίτεξ ἦν γυνή
Adler number: epsilon,2668
Translated headword: the woman was at childbirth-point
Vetting Status: high

Meaning at the actual moment of parturition.
Greek Original:
Ἐπίτεξ ἦν ἡ γυνή: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ τῷ κύειν.
Notes:
Entry lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFV.
The headword phrase might be quoted from somewhere, but is perhaps simply an approximation of Herodotus 1.111.1 (of Mandane, mother of the future Cyrus the Great: see web address 1); it does include the uncommon adverb ἐπίτεξ .
