Headword: Ἱερόν τι νεωκορήσας
Adler number: iota,187
Translated headword: having cleaned out some shrine
Vetting Status: high
Meaning having rather euphemistically served as priest
Greek Original:
Ἱερόν τι νεωκορήσας: ἀντὶ τοῦ εὐφημότερον ἱερατεύσας.
The headword phrase is quoted from Plato, Republic 574D -- where, contrary to what this gloss (first in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon) supposes, 'clean out' is ironic: plunder, strip. (See web address 1.) Theodoridis on Photius s.v. obelizes the entire gloss, and endorses Kuster's view that it should be εὐφημότερον ἀντὶ τοῦ ἱεροσυλήσας .
