Headword: Ὅρκος
Adler number: omicron,594
Translated headword: oath
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A type.[1] "Thus may you be blessed with children as heirs. Thus may god give you this and that."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὅρκος: τύπος: οὕτω παισὶ χρήσαιο κληρονόμοις. οὕτω τὰ καὶ τὰ θεός σοι δοίη.
Notes:
[1] As headword and gloss the transmitted nominative singulars ὅρκος and τύπος do not make obvious sense. Adler notes Gaisford's emendation of ὅρκος to the genitive ὅρκου , producing an unglossed headword phrase ὅρκου τύπος ('a type of oath'). No equivalent entry, either way, in other lexica.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as Julian, Letter to the Senate and People of Athens 275C Hertlein (6 Bidez). In the preceding sentence Julian characterizes the wishes expressed here as "oaths" (ὅρκους ), which explains the pertinence of the quotation to the headword. Perhaps by characterizing this 'oath' as a "type" the lexicographer is reflecting the fact that Julian is using the word in an unusual sense (see LSJ s.v. τύπος VIII, for the meaning "vague impression", "general sense".)
