"Feed on [light] breezes, fostering your young soul." That is, on a light and tender life. From a metaphor of plants, which are not able to endure anything severe, neither heat nor wind. Ajax says [this] to his child.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] e)kkoufi/sas ["he having weighed anchor"], meaning he having arrived, he having sailed out. "Dionysios by name, merchant by profession, having often made many long sea-voyages, as profit stimulated him, and having weighed anchor beyond Maiotis,[2] purchases a Colchian girl, who had been kidnapped by the Makhlues, a tribe of the local barbarians."[3]
