Headword: Ἴσῳ ζυγῷ
Adler number: iota,675
Translated headword: with an equal yoke
Vetting Status: high
Meaning on an equal basis. "Loving him and being loved by him, as they say, 'with an equal yoke,' he willingly spent time with him, and did nothing that that man did not first investigate and say that it ought to be done."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἴσῳ ζυγῷ: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐξίσης. ὁ δὲ ἀγαπήσας αὐτὸν καὶ φιληθεὶς τὸ λεγόμενον ἴσῳ ζυγῷ παρ' ἐκείνου, ἡδέως μὲν αὐτῷ συνῆν, ἔπραττε δὲ οὐδὲν ὧν μὴ πρότερον ἐκεῖνος πύθοιτο καὶ φήσειεν εἶναι πρακτέον.
The headword phrase is presumably extracted from the quotation, though see next note
[1] Julian, Oration 8.244C. The phrase itself is first attested (and with the same application) in Theocritus, Idylls 12.15 (and glossed in the scholia to as ὁμοίως ).
