Headword: Λιμήν
Adler number: lambda,545
Translated headword: haven
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Sophocles [writes]: "for to the majority of mortals the haven of comradeship is distrusted." [1] [A 'haven' is] where there would be a love of comradeship.
Greek Original:
Λιμήν: Σοφοκλῆς: τοῖς πολλοῖσι γὰρ βροτῶν ἄπιστος ἔσθ' ἑταιρείας λιμήν. ἵν' ᾖ τῆς ἑταιρείας φιλία.
Notes:
The unglossed headword -- illustrating here the figurative sense of the noun λιμήν "harbour" (see LSJ s.v., II) -- is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] Sophocles, Ajax 682-683, with scholion; more fully, already, at alpha 655.
