"According to some [sc. an 'age' is] 7 years, which is also why the doctors say that it is not right to let blood for two ages, saying that [it is] the fourteenth [year] when blood still is lacking and [a patient] does not yet have an excess of blood; but according to others [it is] 30 [years], which is also why they want Nestor to be 90 years [old]."[1]
Also [sc. attested is] τριγέρων ["thrice-aged"], one living three ages, that is, ninety years old. "Nestor [...] thrice-aged has a tomb in sacred Pylos."[2]
