Headword: Κήνσωρ
Adler number: kappa,1524
Translated headword: censor
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Appius Claudius was] named assessor among Romans, [i.e.] a particular examiner of the civic institutions, giving attention to the moderate and old-fashioned life of each of the citizens.
Greek Original:
Κήνσωρ: τιμητὴς παρὰ Ῥωμαίοις ὀνομαζόμενος, ἐξεταστής τις τῶν πολιτικῶν διαιτημάτων πρὸς τὸ σῶφρον καὶ ἀρχαιότροπον ἑκάστου τῶν πολιτῶν ἐπιστρέφων τὸν βίον.
Notes:
The headword is a transliteration of the Latin word censor; cf. kappa 1522 and esp. kappa 1523.
The material as a whole reappears more fully at tau 615, which makes it clear that Appius Claudius is being described; and cf. under alpha 3199, lambda 520. It is not identified by Adler but is now accepted as John of Antioch fr. 101 Roberto.
