Headword: Φάγωμεν καὶ πίωμεν
Adler number: phi,12
Translated headword: let us eat and let us drink
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The active forms [are spelled] with omega; but the passives[1] φάγονται καὶ πίονται ["they will eat" and "they will drink"] with omicron.
Greek Original:
Φάγωμεν καὶ πίωμεν, τὰ ἐνεργητικὰ διὰ τοῦ ω μεγάλου: τὰ δὲ παθητικὰ φάγονται καὶ πίονται διὰ τοῦ ο μικροῦ.
Notes:
cf. epsilon 3140, pi 1631.
The headword phrase, not identified by Adler, is a quotation from 1 Corinthians 15.32 (where the apostle in turn quotes Isaiah 22.13).
The aorist subjunctive regularly has a long thematic vowel. Short-voweled middle forms of φαγεῖν occur in later Greek, apparently with a future sense, e.g. Luke 14.15. These forms may be influenced by πίομαι , which serves as the future of πίνω (see LSJ s.v.).
[1] The lexicographer calls these forms "passive," but they are transitive middle forms with a sense indistinguishable from the active.
