Headword: Ἐσπαθᾶτο
Adler number: epsilon,3177
Translated headword: was woven
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Aeschines [uses this] to mean was killed.[1] From the blade [σπάθη ]. Alternatively, was cast out, or was cut through; or meaning was pressed together. From the weavers' blade, which presses the woof together.
Greek Original:
Ἐσπαθᾶτο: Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ κατ' Αἰσχίνου ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀπώλλυτο. παρὰ τὴν σπάθην. ἢ τὸ ἐρρίπτετο, ἢ διεκόπτετο: ἢ ἀντὶ τοῦ συνετίθετο. ἀπὸ τῆς τῶν ὑφαντῶν σπάθης, ἥτις συντίθησι τὰ ὑφαινόμενα.
Notes:
An abridgement of Harpokration s.v., where it is clearer than it is here that two lines of interpretation are competing: σπάθη as sword and as weaving implement.
cf. delta 962, epsilon 3176, epsilon 3178; and see generally LSJ s.v. σπάθη (web address 1).
[1] Demosthenes 19.43.
