Headword: Οὐροτομήσαντες
Adler number: omicron,956
Translated headword: having done a tail cut
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[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.
Notes:
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.)
