Headword: ᾟ ποδῶν εἶχεν ἕκαστος ἔθεον
Adler number: eta,438
Translated headword: each man ran off as fast as his feet could carry him
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning as fast as they could.
Greek Original:
ᾟ ποδῶν εἶχεν ἕκαστος ἔθεον: ἀντὶ τοῦ ὡς εἶχον δυνάμεως.
Note:
The full headword phrase, evidently quoted from somewhere, is unidentifiable, though Kuster noted the same idiom in Aelian (Varia Historia 1.11, 14.22); and see generally LSJ s.v. πούς , I.6.d. Note the construction according to sense, with the verb shifting from singular to plural.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography
