Adler number: omicroniota,161
Translated headword: they were thinking [something] an omen
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] they were being deterred as if by an evil omen.[1] "The youth hated him and thought him an [ill] omen, but the older men embraced him and praised him."[2]
And elsewhere: "[...] with the omens more auspicious and a more secure preparation to renew prosecution of the war."[3]
And elsewhere: "[...] when all expecting Aemilius to take omens, thinking [him] marching out, seeing [him] marching in."[4]
Greek Original:
Οἰωνίζοντο: ἀπετρέποντο ὡς κακῷ οἰωνῷ. τὸν δὲ ἡ μὲν νεότης ἐμίσουν τε καὶ οἰωνίζοντο, οἱ δὲ πρεσβύτεροι κατησπάζοντο καὶ ἐπῄνουν. καὶ αὖθις: ξὺν αἰσιωτέροις τοῖς οἰωνοῖς καὶ παρασκευῇ βεβαιοτέρᾳ αὖθις ἅψασθαι τοῦ πολέμου. καὶ αὖθις: ὅτε πάντας οἰωνίζεσθαι προσδοξάζοντας τὸν Αἰμίλιον ἐκπορευόμενον δοκεῖν ὁρᾶν εἰσπορευόμενον.
Notes:
[1] cf. omicroniota 160, omicroniota 162. The present headword is presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. Attributed to Aelian by Valckenaer, to Cassius Dio by Mai, adducing Livy 8.12 on T.Manlius Torquatus (tau 791): cui venienti seniores tantum obviam exisse constat, iuventutem et tunc et omni vita deinde aversatam eum exsecratamque. Oddly, the phrase "the youth hated him and thought him an (ill) omen" appears in Gregorius 3.70 as if a proverb.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable.
[4] Quotation (regarded by Kuster as textually corrupt) unidentifiable.
