Headword: Μεμνῇτο
Adler number: mu,569
Translated headword: might remember
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] might keep in mind.[1] Accented like this with a circumflex on the penultimate syllable, as Herodian [says] in his Homeric Prosody. Aristophanes in Wealth [writes]: "so that wearing my cloak he might remember me."[2]
Greek Original:
Μεμνῇτο: μιμνήσκοιτο. οὕτω προπερισπωμένως, ὡς Ἡρωδιανὸς ἐν τῇ Ὁμηρικῇ προσῳδίᾳ. Ἀριστοφάνης Πλούτῳ: ἵνα τοὐμὸν ἱμάτιον φορῶν μεμνῇτό μου.
Notes:
[1] The headword, extracted from the quotation (eventually) given, is optative of μέμνημαι , third person singular. For the verb, see also mu 567, mu 568.
[2] Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 991 (web address 1), with scholion; cf. scholion A on Homer, Iliad 23.361. Aelius Herodian, De prosodia catholica 3.1.463, discusses the accentuation; in other places, including Περὶ Ἰλιακῆς προσῳδίας , he discusses why the vowel is eta rather than omega.
