Headword: Ἤκαχες
Adler number: eta,161
Translated headword: you caused grief [to]
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] you caused distress [to], you led astray.[1] "Ah, how great a mind of youths you have distressed! But behold, you dwell in lovely Lethe, having been laid in the earth." [This is written] about Lais the courtesan.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἤκαχες: ἐλύπησας, παρέτρεψας. ἆ πόσων ἠιθέων νόων ἤκαχες: ἀλλ' ἴδε, Λήθην ναίεις ἀγλαί̈ην ἐν χθονὶ κατθεμένη. περὶ Λαί̈δος τῆς ἑταίρας.
Notes:
[1] The headword (presumably extracted from the quotation given) is the reduplicated aorist of ἀχέω , second person singular; cf. alpha 822, alpha 823, and a scholion on Homer, Iliad 16.822 (where ἤκαχε occurs). See also eta 162.
[2] Greek Anthology 7.220.5-6 (but read πόσον ἠϊθέων νόον ), with comment. For Lais see lambda 40.
