Headword: Λάχος
Adler number: lambda,170
Translated headword: portion, lot
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] part.
"[...] in which there was also a large portion of wild boar."[1]
They also say πρόλαχος , [meaning] the first share.
And elsewhere in the Fables: "so this first portion" -- part -- "I will take."[2]
And elsewhere: "a portion of the sphere was mixed with dust."[3]
Greek Original:
Λάχος: μοῖρα. ἐν οἷς ἦν καὶ συὸς ἀγρίου μέγα λάχος. λέγεται δὲ καὶ Πρόλαχος, ἡ πρώτη μερίς. καὶ αὖθις ἐν Μύθοις: τοῦτο μὲν οὖν πρῶτον λάχος [μέρος] οἴσομαι. καὶ αὖθις: σφαῖρα δὲ λάχος κονίης ἐμίχθη.
Notes:
[1] Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 104 Habrich.
[2] Fragment of dactylic fable, included in appendix to Crusius' edition of Babrius, p. 216. As to the glossing of 'portion' with 'part', Adler notes that Ruhnken adduced Plato, Laws 5.745D.
[3] Quotation (in which, with Kuster, one should read genitive σφαίρας for the transmitted σφαίρα ; cf. Crusius in his edition of Babrius, p. 216) unidentifiable. Crusius doubted that this fragment belongs to a fable; perhaps it is part of a cosmogony.
