Adler number: omicron,956
Translated headword: having done a tail cut
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning they] having cut [sc. animals'] tails.
"[They] having done a tail cut on fifty horses".[1]
Greek Original:
Οὐροτομήσαντες: τὰ οὐραῖα κόψαντες. οὐροτομήσαντες πεντήκοντα ἵππους.
The headword (presumably extracted from the quotation given, though the latter is omitted from mss AF) is aorist participle, masculine nominative plural, of an otherwise unattested verb οὐροτομέω .
[1] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler initially suggested that it might come from 'FGrH 100', i.e. Dexippus, but in her consolidated addenda and corrigenda this was changed to FGrH 151, an anonymous Alexander-history.)
