Headword: Ὀρθῷ νόμῳ
Adler number: omicron,582
Translated headword: by upright law
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] by the [law] of affection.[1] "Of my friends, the only ones abiding by upright law."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὀρθῷ νόμῳ: τῷ τῆς ἀγάπης. ἐμῶν φίλων μόνοι ἐμμένοντες ὀρθῶ νόμῳ.
The headword phrase is evidently extracted from the quotation given. Its noun is the dative singular of the masculine noun νόμος, -ου, ὁ ; the adjective is the same form (masculine/neuter) of the adjective ὀρθός, -ή, -όν . See generally LSJ s.vv. [NB: no connection with omicron 574/omicron 575/omicron 585.]
[1] The gloss is close in sense to, and probably generated by, the scholia to the quotation (for which see next note).
[2] Sophocles, Ajax 350 (web address 1: Ajax is still under the spell of Athena and praising his dead cattle).
