Headword: Ὀδάξ
Adler number: omicron,28
Translated headword: by biting
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] being bitten with the teeth.[1]
"'Hey, Diogenes, tell us, what fate took you to Hades?' 'A dog's bite took me.'"[2]
Greek Original:
Ὀδάξ: τοῖς ὀδοῦσιν ἐνδεδηχότως. Διόγενες, ἄγε, λέγε, τίς ἔλαβέ σε μόρος ἐς ἄϊδος; ἔλαβέ με κυνὸς ἄγριον ὀδάξ.
Notes:
[1] The headword, an epic adverb, has the same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius omicron25 Theodoridis) and in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 2.418 (where it occurs).
[2] Diogenes Laertius 6.79 = Greek Anthology 7.116; see also alpha 180, delta 1141. Here ὀδάξ seems (as noted in LSJ) to be used as a noun.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; imagery; philosophy; poetry; zoology
