Headword: Ἐκκαλεῖται
Adler number: epsilon,344
Translated headword: calls out, provokes
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] summons.[1]
"Caecilius, observing him [= Hannibal] emboldened, and wishing to provoke him to make a move, kept the soldiers inside the gates."[2] ['To provoke'] meaning to summon.
Also [sc. attested is the participle] ἐκκαλούμενοι ["being provoked"], [meaning they] being summoned or taking care. "With the senate taking no care [as to] whether they were provoking the slander against themselves in order not to appear to be bringing Marcius against the city themselves, or contending with the populus and habituating it not to condemn lightly a man of patrician birth".[3]
Greek Original:
Ἐκκαλεῖται: προκαλεῖται. ὁ δὲ Κεκίλιος θεωρῶν αὐτὸν κατατεθαρρηκότα, βουλόμενος ἐκκαλεῖσθαι τὴν ὁρμὴν αὐτοῦ, συνεῖχε τοὺς στρατιώτας ἐντὸς τῶν πυλῶν. ἀντὶ τοῦ προκαλεῖσθαι. καὶ Ἐκκαλούμενοι, προκαλούμενοι ἢ προμηθούμενοι. τῆς δὲ βουλῆς οὐδὲν προθυμουμένης, εἴτε τὴν καθ' αὑτῶν ἐκκαλούμενοι διαβολήν, ἵνα μὴ δοκοῖεν αὐτοὶ Μάρκιον ἐπάγειν ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν, εἴτε τῷ δήμῳ φιλονεικοῦντες καὶ ἐθίζοντες αὐτὸν μὴ ῥᾳδίως ἀνδρὸς πατρικίου καταδικάζειν.
cf. epsilon 1605.
[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword must be quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities are numerous. For the verb cf. epsilon 343.
[2] Polybius 1.40.3 (web address 1) on L. Caecilius Metellus, one of the consuls of 251/0 BCE.
[3] This quotation (on an episode of early Roman history; cf. mu 210) was left unidentified by Adler, who declared rash Mai's attribution of it to Cassius Dio. Latterly Favuzzi [see under alpha 1596] 198-199 canvasses the likelihood, on vocabulary grounds, of Appian, Dio, and John of Antioch, and argues for Appian.
