Headword: Εἴσω ἁλός
Adler number: epsiloniota,302
Translated headword: within [the broad bosom] of the sea
Vetting Status: high
'Within' has the same force as 'into'; in effect, into [the broad bosom] of the sea.
Also, in the orators, is the phrase 'to keep the hand within',[1] which some thought to be an error; but they were wrong, forgetting that, just as we might say 'inside' and it would mean both in something and into something, so the term 'within' is applied to both situations.
Greek Original:
Εἴσω ἁλός: ἰσοδυναμεῖ τὸ εἴσω τῇ εἰς: οἷον εἰς ἁλός. καὶ παρὰ τοῖς ῥήτορσιν εἴρηται, εἴσω τὴν χεῖρα ἔχειν, ὅπερ ἔνιοι ἁμάρτημα ἔδοξαν εἶναι: ἀλλ' ἐπλανήθησαν ἀγνοοῦντες, ὅτι ὥσπερ ἔνδον εἴποιμεν, δηλοῖ δὲ καὶ τὸ ἔν τινι, καὶ τὸ ἔς τινα, οὕτω καὶ τὸ εἴσω ἐφ' ἑκάτερον παραλαμβάνεται.
The headword phrase, here compressed, occurs in Homer, Iliad 21.125, and the initial gloss here comes from the scholia there.
