Headword: Μονανδρεῖ
Adler number: mu,1213
Translated headword: has one husband, is monogamous
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"In the olden days the women of Egyptians did not know [how] to be monogamous."[1]
Greek Original:
Μονανδρεῖ. οὐκ ᾔδεισαν Αἰγυπτίων αἱ γυναῖκες τὸ παλαιὸν μονανδρεῖν.
Notes:
The verb μονανδρέω appears only in the context of this narrative. (The unglossed headword itself is transmitted as indicative μονανδρεῖ and so translated here; one might suspect, nonetheless, that it should be μονανδρεῖν .) There also exists a feminine noun, μονανδρία , and an adjective, μόνανδρος .
[1] Slightly rephrased from eta 661 (q.v.). This narrative is found in Byzantine chronography: Chronicon Paschale 82.1-4 (= ps.-Malalas, Chronologica 21.14-17); John of Antioch fr. 7.1 Roberto; Georgius Cedrenus, Compendium Historiarum 1.35.15-17.
