Adler number: omicron,752
Translated headword: he who had trembled, the trembler
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aristodemos acquired this name, [the man] who with Eurytos [had an illness of] the eyes and did not participate in the battle of the Persians.[1]
Greek Original:
Ὁ τρέσας: ὁ Ἀριστόδημος οὕτως ἐκλήθη, ὃς σὺν Εὐρύτῳ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς οὐκ ἐκοινώνησε τῆς τῶν Περσῶν μάχης.
Notes:
See Herodotos 7.229-231 (web address 1); the present explanation comes from a gloss on the last of these three chapters. cf. generally tau 926. For 'those who had trembled' as a generic term for Spartans who showed cowardice in the face of battle, and were partially disenfranchised as a result, see e.g. P.A.Cartledge, Agesilaos (1987) 179.
