Headword: Katechlainôse
Adler number: kappa,1022
Translated headword: winter-cloaked
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] dressed [someone] in winter-cloaks.[1] "Menas clothed and winter-cloaked the army; for the lengthy passage of time and the harshness of the localities had worn out their [sc. summer] cloaks".[2]
Greek Original:
Katechlainôse: chlainais estolisen. ho de Mênas êmphiase te kai katechlainôse to stratiôtikon: hê gar chronia tribê kai to trachu tôn chôrôn katedapanêsen autois ta himatia.
Notes:
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is third person singular, aorist indicative active, of kataxlaino/w.
[2] Quotation left unidentified by Adler; now Favuzzi [see under alpha 1596] 214-215 finds vocabulary-based grounds for attributing it to John of Antioch. Menas is presumably the pirate chief of pi 2025 and tau 106. In any event, the distinction being drawn here is between the heavy chlaina (chi 335) and the lighter himation (iota 338, iota 339, iota 340).
