Headword: Μορῶν
Adler number: mu,1259
Translated headword: mora
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Demosthenes in [the] Philippics [sc. uses the word].[1] Certain Laconian formations are called thus. And Aristotle says that there are six named moirai[sic] and all Lakedaimonians are divided between the moirai.[2] And Xenophon says, in the Constitution of the Lakedaimonians: "each of the citizen morai has one polemarch, four lochagoi, five pentekostyes, and sixteen enomotarchs".[3]
Greek Original:
Μορῶν: Δημοσθένης ἐν Φιλιππικοῖς. συντάγματά τινα Λακωνικὰ οὕτω καλεῖται. φησὶ δὲ Ἀριστοτέλης, ὥς εἰσι μοῖραι ἓξ ὠνομασμέναι, καὶ διῄρηνται εἰς τὰς μοίρας Λακεδαιμόνιοι πάντες. Ξενοφῶν δέ φησιν ἐν τῇ Λακώνων πολιτείᾳ: ἑκάστη δὲ τῶν πολιτικῶν μορῶν ἔχει πολέμαρχον ἕνα, λοχαγοὺς δ#, πεντηκοστύας η#, ἐννομοτάρχας ἑκκαίδεκα.
Notes:
From Harpokration s.v. μόραν (sic: accusative singular, as in the primary source; in the Suda it has become genitive plural).
[1] Demosthenes 13.22. (As regularly in the Suda and other lexica, this is "Philippics" in the broad ancient sense.) See also 23.198.
[2] Aristotle fr. 540 Rose.
[3] Xenophon, Lakedaimonion Politeia 11.4.
