Greek display:    

Headword: Σακεσφόροι
Adler number: sigma,37
Translated headword: sakos-carriers, shield-carriers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] weapon-carriers, shield-carriers.
Greek Original:
Σακεσφόροι: ὁπλοφόροι, ἀσπιδηφόροι.
Note:
Same entry in other lexica. The nominative plural headword occurs in -- and is surely extracted from -- Euripides, Phoenician Women 139. Its noteworthiness lies in the relatively rare word used for the 'shield' part of the compound (sakos; cf. sigma 36, sigma 40); the two glosses employ more commonplace ones (hoplon, aspis).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; military affairs; tragedy
