Headword: Ἤγαλλεν
Adler number: eta,30
Translated headword: used to honour
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] used to serve.[1] Dio in [the] 16th book of Roman [History writes]: "so both for these reasons and because he strictly paid honour to divinity".[2] Other writers have used this term including Eunomios the impious.[3] And this last [sc. has used it] often.[4]
Greek Original:
Ἤγαλλεν: ἐθεράπευεν. Δίων ἐν ι#2# λόγῳ Ῥωμαϊκῶν: διά τε οὖν ταῦτα, καὶ ὅτι τὸ θεῖον ἀκριβῶς ἤγαλλεν. κέχρηνται δὲ τῇ λέξει ταύτῃ ἄλλοι τε καὶ Εὐνόμιος ὁ δυσσεβής. καὶ αὐτὸς οὗτος πολλάκις.
Notes:
All the entry is from the Lexicon Rhetoricum (the fifth Bekkerian Lexicon) eta248, used also by Photius, Lexicon eta14 Theodoridis, and Etymologicum Magnum 418.5.
The headword verb is extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Even though we cannot consider this entry a derivation from the Lexicon Ambrosianum, note that this gloss is to be found also in Laurentianus 59.16 folium 184. For the verb cf. alpha 130.
[2] Cassius Dio 16.57.39 (on Scipio).
[3] The verb ἀγάλλω is common in writers of all periods, but is not extant in the theologian Eunomius of Cyzicus. On the other hand it is extensively used by Gregory of Nyssa in his work against the Eunomian theory, Against Eunomius. For more information on Eunomius see epsilon 3598.
[4] Although this last phrase is not included in the gloss of the Bekkerian edition of the Lexicon Rhetoricum (according to Theodoridis on Photius s.v.), we can consider it also from there, because the Etymologicum Magnum, the compiler of which had available a better copy of that Lexicon, preserves the phrase.
