Headword: Οἷος εἶ
Adler number: omicroniota,156
Translated headword: you are willing
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
['you are willing'] and 'you are able'. The one without the [particle] te signifies you wish and you prefer, but the one with the te [indicates] ability. Lysias uses both.
Greek Original:
Οἷος εἶ καὶ οἷός τε εἶ: τὸ μὲν χωρὶς τοῦ τε σημαίνει τὸ βούλει καὶ προῄρησαι, τὸ δὲ σὺν τῷ τε δύνασθαι. ἀμφοτέροις δὲ Λυσίας ἐχρήσατο.
Note:
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., which is more specific: Lysias uses both in the same (lost) speech Against Lysitheos (fr. 159 Sauppe, now 211a Carey OCT).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; rhetoric
