Headword: Μουνὰξ μάχη
Adler number: mu,1286
Translated headword: single combat
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] duelling.
Greek Original:
Μουνὰξ μάχη: ἡ μονομαχία.
Note:
An entry perhaps generated by kappa 458 (Aelian fr.120 Hercher), q.v. The adverb rendered here as "single" (μουνάξ ) appears in Homer, Odyssey 11.416 in reference to combat, and the gloss "duelling" appears in the scholia thereto; cf. Hesychius mu1733, which, however, Latte connects with Odyssey 8.371 where the adverb is applied to dancing rather than fighting.
