Headword: Ἐπταικώς
Adler number: epsilon,2870
Translated headword: having stumbled
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he having] fallen.[1]
"Crossing the threshold of the court he stumbled rather hard and was brought down to the ground."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπταικώς: σφαλείς. ὁ δὲ ὑπερβαίνων τὸν οὐδὸν τῆς αὐλῆς ἔπταισε βιαιότερον καὶ πρὸς γῆν κατηνέχθη.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is perfect participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb πταίω (pi 3005). It must be extracted from somewhere; Latte on Hesychius s.v. reasonably suggests the Septuagint (2 Maccabees 14.17).
[2] Aelian fr. 41 Domingo-Forasté (38 Hercher).
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion
