Headword: Οὐδὲν μέλον αὐτῷ
Adler number: omicron,803
Translated headword: nothing being of interest to it
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"But the assemblage of Romans was holding off from battle, nothing being of interest to it beyond the matter of the consequences issuing from its desire for resting arms."[1]
Greek Original:
Οὐδὲν μέλον αὐτῷ: τὸ δὲ τῶν Ῥωμαίων ἄθροισμα ἀπόμαχον ἦν, οὐδὲν μέλον αὐτῷ περὶ ἀλλοτρίου τοῦ πράγματος τῶν γινομένων τὴν φροντίδα τιθέμενον.
Notes:
The unglossed headword phrase is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
In this idiom (for which cf. omicron 916) the participle is the present active, neuter nominative/accusative singular of the verb μέλω , I am an object of interest; see LSJ s.v.
[1] An approximation of Theophylact Simocatta, Histories 3.3.9; Whitby and Whitby, p. 76. The quotation relates to the mutiny in the Roman army, in particular those forces within the Byzantine city of Constantina (Barrington Atlas map 89 grid B3; Tella, Syria; present-day Viranşehir, Turkey), on the eastern frontier with Persia 588-9 CE (Whitby, p. 287).
