Adler number: omicron,849
Translated headword: not indeed without Theseus.
Vetting Status: high
Theseus assisted Meleager [Author, Myth] in the boar hunt, Peirithoos against the centaurs,[1] and Herakles against the Amazons. So whenever something remarkable is accomplished, they say, 'not indeed without Theseus'.
Greek Original:
Οὐκ ἄνευ γε Θησέως: Θησεὺς καὶ τῷ Μελεάγρῳ συνηγωνίσατο πρὸς τὴν θήραν τοῦ κάπρου καὶ τῷ Πειριθόῳ κατὰ τῶν Κενταύρων καὶ τῷ Ἡρακλεῖ πρὸς τὰς Ἀμαζόνας. ὅταν οὖν θαυμαστόν τι πραχθῇ, οὐκ ἄνευ γε Θησέως λέγεται.
