Headword: Ἑτεραλκέα
Adler number: epsilon,3288
Translated headword: strengthening the others
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] inclining the other way.[1]
[sc. Also attested is the phrase] ἑτεραλκὴς νίκη ["victory strengthening the others"], [used] in reference to cavalry whenever those who have been defeated win the victory.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἑτεραλκέα: ἑτεροκλινῆ. Ἑτεραλκὴς νίκη, ἐπὶ ἵππου ὅταν οἱ ἡττηθέντες νικήσωσιν.
Notes:
[1] The headword is accusative singular of the adjective ἑτεραλκής . Same or similar glossing in other lexica, beginning with Hesychius, and also in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 8.171, where it occurs (web address 1). See further, next note
[2] This phrase occurs five times (accusative case) in Homer, including Iliad 8.171 (see n.1). For the present gloss cf. a scholion on Iliad 7.26 (web address 2) -- but it is the lexicographer who, oddly, limits the scope to cavalry.
