Headword: Οὐ μήν
Adler number: omicron,920
Translated headword: indeed not
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] yet truly,[1] in no wise,[2] not only,[3] moreover, all the same.[4]
"He was indeed not able to do anything, but remained carefully watching over the land."[5]
Greek Original:
Οὐ μήν: ἀλλὰ μήν, οὐδαμῶς, οὐ μόνον, ἔτι μήν, ὅμως δέ. οὐ μὴν εἶχε ποιεῖν οὐδὲν, ἀλλ' ἔμενε κατὰ χώραν τηρούμενος ἐπιμελῶς.
The particle combination in the headword phrase has the sense of an emphatic denial; see LSJ s.v. μήν II.5 and Denniston, pp. 338-9. It might be extracted from the quotation given here, though probably not, since earlier lexica (see n.4 below) do not have the quotation.
[1] See LSJ s.v. μήν II.3 and Denniston, pp. 341-7.
[2] Adverbial; see LSJ s.v. οὐδαμῶς .
[3] Adverbial; see LSJ s.v. μόνως II.2. (The entry up to this point is identical to Hesychius s.v. οὐ μήν .)
[4] This glossing as a whole collects some adverbial phrases and particle combinations that have a similar or adverse sense to that of the lemma. Identical glossing in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (omicron662 Theodoridis) and Lexica Segueriana 322.15; and cf. a scholion on Plato, Laws 822C (web address 1), where the headword phrase occurs.
