Headword: Ἐσπεῖσθαι
Adler number: epsilon,3192
Translated headword: to have poured libations
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to have made drink-offerings [with someone].[1] "But if he should have any cause in regard to the libations, such that it would not seem good for him to have made libations himself [...]."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐσπεῖσθαι: σπονδὰς πεποιῆσθαι. ἄν τινα δ' ἄρα αἰτίαν ἐπὶ ταῖς σπονδαῖς σχῇ, πρὸς τὸ μὴ αὐτὸς ἐσπεῖσθαι δοκεῖν.
Notes:
[1] The headword is perfect middle-passive infinitive of σπένδω , presumably extracted from the quotation given; cf. epsilon 3191, sigma 920.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; religion
