Headword: Γυμνικοὶ ἀγῶνες
Adler number: gamma,484
Translated headword: gymnastic contests
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"When he was in Persia,[1] Julian held gymnastic contests."[2] That is, as many [contests as are] nude.
Greek Original:
Γυμνικοὶ ἀγῶνες: ὁ δὲ Ἰουλιανὸς ἐν Πέρσαις ὢν γυμνικοὺς ἀγῶνας ἦγε. τουτέστιν ὅσους γυμνούς.
Notes:
The headword phrase, in the nominative plural, is presumably generated by its accusative plural in the quotation given.
[1] Or perhaps, more exactly, 'in Persepolis'; see LSJ s.v. Πέρσης , I.b.
[2] The quotation reappears at eta 45, and cf. epsilon 322. Adler tentatively attributed it to Eunapius; now Blockley, Eunapius fr. 27.(4).
