Headword: Ἔχετον
Adler number: epsilon,3995
Translated headword: you two have; they two have; let the two have (?)
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning (?)let them [sc. both] have. In the dual.[1]
"This is what Timaeus and Anaximenes [sc. both] say, and they also [sc. both] have Clitarchus agreeing with them in one and the same [judgement]."[2]
Also [sc. attested is] ἐχέτην ["the two had"], in the dual meaning they had.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἔχετον: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐχέτωσαν. δυϊκῶς. λέγετον τοῦτο Τίμαιος καὶ Ἀναξιμένης, ἔχετον δὲ καὶ Κλείταρχον αὐτοῖς νοοῦντας ἐς μίαν καὶ τὴν αὐτήν. καὶ Ἐχέτην, δυϊκῶς ἀντὶ τοῦ εἶχον.
Notes:
[1] The headword form, a dual from ἔχω , could be second- or third-person indicative or second-person imperative. Here, and again in ps.-Zonaras, it is interpreted as third person dual imperative (cf. epsilon 4036). The appended quotation -- see next note -- is apparently unconnected.
[2] Quotation (from the historiography generated by Alexander the Great) unidentifiable. Adler tentatively attributed it to Polybius, while also noting FGrH 72 F39, where (under Anaximenes: alpha 1989) Jacoby classified this sentence as 'of uncertain status'. (Adler also cited FGrH 137 F6, where (under Clitarchus: kappa 1764) the item, oddly, is held to deserve a place as one of the unlocatable fragments. Odder still, it passes unmentioned under FGrH 566, Timaeus [tau 600, tau 602].) In any event Bernhardy's emendation of the accusative plural participle νοοῦντας to singular νοοῦντα seems to be what the sense requires.
[3] Unaugmented third-person dual, imperfect, of ἔχω : cf. epsiloniota 342. Probably quoted from Homer, Iliad 5.569 or 18.580.
