Headword: Μονανδρεῖ
Adler number: mu,1213
Translated headword: has one husband, is monogamous
Vetting Status: high
"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.
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.
Keywords: chronology; daily life; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; gender and sexuality; geography; historiography; women
