Headword: Ἡβηδόν
Adler number: eta,17
Translated headword: from the youth upwards, all of age
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] them who are of age; or the armies, or all gathered together in accordance with age-groups.[1]
"They slaughtered everyone who was of age, feeling anger because the people were not subject to their word."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἡβηδόν: ἡβῶντας: ἢ τὰς στρατιάς, ἢ ἀθρόον ὅλα καθ' ἡλικίας. οἱ δὲ ἡβηδὸν ἅπαντας ἀπέσφαξαν ὀργὴν ποιούμενοι τῷ μὴ τοῖς σφῶν ὑπαχθῆναι λόγοις.
[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword -- again at eta 18, and see also under omicron 669 -- is an adverb derived from ἥβη (eta 16); see generally LSJ s.v. In the present instance the glosses are in the accusative plural, perhaps because of the passage about to be quoted (but not necessarily so: Photius et al. do not have it).
[2] Quotation unidentifiable (but 'feeling anger' echoes Thucydides 4.122.5).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history; military affairs
