Headword: Ὅσα μὲν τῷ δοκεῖν κακοπαθοῦσαι
Adler number: omicron,678
Translated headword: appearing to be suffering harm
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
["(They) appearing to be suffering harm,] but in truth relieved from harm": meaning appearing to be suffering badly, etc.
Greek Original:
Ὅσα μὲν τῷ δοκεῖν κακοπαθοῦσαι, τὸ δ' ἀληθὲς κακῶν ἀπαλλαγεῖσαι: ἀντὶ τοῦ τῷ μὲν δοκεῖν κακῶς παθοῦσαι, καὶ τὰ ἑξῆς.
Notes:
Almost identical entry in the Lexica Segueriana (321.18) and Photius, Lexicon (omicron549 Theodoridis), though there the first participle in the long headword phrase (repeated in the glossing phrase) is κακωθεῖσαι ; the Suda has κακοπαθοῦσαι and κακῶς παθοῦσαι . Either way, the unidentifiable headword phrase must be quoted from somewhere.
These participles are in the feminine nominative plural, but they are less likely to refer to women than to impersonal things that are grammatically feminine. For κακωθεῖσαι cf. e.g. Pausanias 1.20.7 (Athens); for κακοπαθοῦσαι cf. e.g. Polybius 5.30.5 (cities).
