Headword: Ἥκω
Adler number: eta,181
Translated headword: I have come
Vetting Status: high
[I have come] differs from I return [κατέρχομαι ]. It means to go into the city, when someone has a share in the homeland; but when an exile comes, he returns [κατέρχεται ]. Aristophanes in Frogs [writes]: "anyone who has a homeland can come into the land, for without other misfortune he has come. But a man who is an exile both comes and returns."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἥκω τοῦ κατέρχομαι διαφέρει. ἐλθεῖν μὲν εἰς τὴν πόλιν ἐστίν, ὅταν μετῇ τινι τῆς πατρίδος: ὅταν δὲ φυγὰς ἔλθῃ, κατέρχεται. Ἀριστοφάνης Βατράχοις: εἰς γῆν μὲν ἐλθεῖν ἔσθων ὅτῳ μετῇ πάτρας: χωρὶς γὰρ ἄλλης συμφορᾶς ἐλήλυθεν. φεύγων δ' ἀνὴρ ἥκει τε καὶ κατέρχεται.
