Headword: Ἔθυσας, ἀντιθύσῃ
Adler number: epsilon,336
Translated headword: you sacrificed [so] you should sacrifice in turn
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The Cyclops says this to Odysseus in Philoxenus.[1] For they misinterpret the [Homeric line] "and then we kindled a fire and sacrificed;"[2] in the Poet [this] is said about sheep, and does not mean we sacrificed.
Greek Original:
Ἔθυσας, ἀντιθύσῃ: τοῦτο παρὰ Φιλοξένῳ ὁ Κύκλωψ λέγει πρὸς τὸν Ὀδυσσέα. ἀπεκδέχονται γὰρ τό, ἔνθα δὲ πῦρ κείαντες ἐθύ- σαμεν, παρὰ τῷ ποιητῇ εἰρῆσθαι ἐπὶ τῶν ἀρνῶν, οὐχὶ δὲ τὸ ἀπεθύσαμεν νοεῖσθαι.
Notes:
This entry -- following Photius, Lexicon epsilon170 -- makes no sense as it stands: the final verb, creating the distinction intended between animal and other sacrifices, must be corrupt. Suggested emendations include ἐπεθύσαμεν ('we burned incense').
