Headword: Ἴθι
Adler number: iota,239
Translated headword: go!
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] walk, or proceed.[1]
Aristophanes in Clouds [writes]: "go, I beseech you."[2] [Meaning] proceed. But here [its sense is] obey me. "I beseech you" [amounts to] I beg you, in Attic. The same [poet] in Frogs [writes]: "go now, since you are high-spirited."[3] Meaning come. For it is synonymous with deuro ['here']. It also means 'come.'[4]
Greek Original:
Ἴθι: ἔρχου, ἢ πορεύου. Ἀριστοφάνης Νεφέλαις: ἴθ' ἀντιβολῶ σε. πορεύου. νῦν δὲ πείσθητί μοι. ἀντιβολῶ σε, παρακαλῶ σε, Ἀττικῶς. ὁ αὐτὸς ἐν Βατράχοις: ἴθι νῦν, ἐπειδὴ ληματιᾷς. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἄγε. συνωνυμεῖ γὰρ τῷ δεῦρο. σημαίνει καὶ τὸ ἄγε.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; see the references at Photius iota74 Theodoridis. The headword is second person singular imperative of εῖμι ; cf. a scholion on Homer, Iliad 2.8, where it occurs (web address 1). See also iota 737.
[2] Aristophanes, Clouds 110 (web address 2), with scholion.
[3] Aristophanes, Frogs 494 (web address 3), with scholion.
[4] The point is that the imperatives ἴθι and ἄγε are used to precede another imperative, as is the adverb δεῦρο .
