Headword: Ἑπταπλασίονα
Adler number: epsilon,2868
Translated headword: seven-fold
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning many-fold.[1] For 'seven' is used in reference to a multitude.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἑπταπλασίονα: ἀντὶ τοῦ πολυπλασίονα. ὁ γὰρ ἑπτὰ ἐπὶ πλήθους τάττεται.
Notes:
[1] Masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative plural of the adjective ἑπταπλασίων , instead of the more common ἑπταπλάσιος . It must be quoted from somewhere, very probably Psalm 78.12 LXX (cf. under kappa 27); cf. Theodoret on the passage.
[2] See again under kappa 27; and generally on the non-numerical properties of seven (and its multiples) D. Whitehead, Hypereides: the forensic speeches (Oxford 2000) 422.
