[Meaning] wandering barbarians; or bandits ready for battle.[1]
Sophocles [writes]: "but if he names one lonely wayfarer, then clearly this deed weighs against me."[2]
Greek Original:
Μονόζωνοι: ἔφοδοι βάρβαροι: ἢ ἀπελάται μάχιμοι. Σοφοκλῆς: εἰ δ' ἄνδρ' ἕν' οἰόζωνον αὐδήσει, σαφῶς τοῦτ' ἐστὶν ἤδη τοὖργον εἰς ἐμὲ ῥέπον.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu518 Theodoridis, where the editor claims the headword as quoted from the Septuagint (4 Kingdoms 5.2; other instances [DW] in 6.23 and 13.20). See also mu 1226 for more on the military use of the word. It is not extant before the Septuagint, but it is used to gloss οἰόζωνος "alone and girt up, lonely wayfarer" in the scholia to the quoted passage of Sophocles.
[2] Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 846-7 (web address 1); cf. preceding note.
