Headword: Λάφυρα
Adler number: lambda,158
Translated headword: booty
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] things taken from one's enemies while they are still alive; what [is taken from them] when they are dead is called spoils [skula].
Greek Original:
Λάφυρα: τὰ ἐκ τῶν πολεμίων ἔτι ζώντων λαμβανόμενα: τὰ δὲ τῶν τεθνεώτων αὐτῶν σκῦλα λέγεται.
Again at sigma 707. The distinction -- here and in other lexica (see the references at Photius lambda121 Theodoridis) -- is attractive but not borne out by usage; see W.K. Pritchett, The Greek State at War, I (Berkeley & Los Angeles 1971) 53-58.
Keywords: definition; economics; ethics; military affairs
