Greek display:    

Headword: Ῥά
Adler number: rho,1
Translated headword: so
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Instead of δή ["indeed"]. Plato [sc. uses the particle] this way.[1]
Greek Original:
Ῥά: ἀντὶ τοῦ δή. οὕτως Πλάτων.
Notes:
Same entry in Photius (rho14 Theodoridis); and cf. Hesychius rho1, who glosses ὡς ῥά with ὡς δή .
The enclitic particle ῥά "is found in Epic and also in lyric poets and the lyrics of tragedy" (Denniston 32, under ἄρα ).
[1] Adler notes, without comment, the suggestion of S.A. Naber that this gloss should refer to Plato the comic poet (pi 1707), not his namesake the philosopher (pi 1707, pi 1709). Theodoridis documents the matter more fully, noting the suggestion of Kassel-Austin at their Plato Comicus fr. 301; they cite Plato, Republic 3.386D (a quotation of Homer, Iliad 23.103).
