Headword: Ἡγέτης
Adler number: eta,48
Translated headword: leader, guide
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the one who leads.[1]
"O guide double chases!"[2]
Greek Original:
Ἡγέτης: ὁ ἡγεμών. ὦ δισσαὶ ἀγέτα θηροσύναι.
Notes:
[1] Headword and gloss are from the Synagoge (Lexica Segueriana eta248.23). Also in Photius, Lexicon eta31 Theodoridis. Perhaps the origin is a scholion to Plato, Republic 547B where this term, very rare in all periods, occurs (in the accusative case).
[2] (ἀγέτα is the Doric form of the vocative of ἠγέτης .) Quoted from Greek Anthology 6.167.2, but corrupting the original text, which is: ὠ δισσᾶς ἀγέτα θηροσύνας ; 'o guide of the double chase'. It is an invocation to an unidentified god, who loves both hunting and fishing, made by Kleonikos, who is both hunter and fisherman.
