Headword: Thetês
Adler number: theta,293
Translated headword: placer
Vetting Status: high
Perhaps they term a placer the man who has deposited a pledge, not, as Didymos [says], the man adopting a child. For "placed" is what they used to call adoptive sons.
Greek Original:
Thetês: mêpote thetên legousi ton hupothêkên tetheikota, ouch hôs ho Didumos ton eispoiêsamenon. thetous gar elegon tous poiêtous.
Slightly expanded -- by the addition of 'a pledge' -- from Harpokration s.v. (where already the reason for this semi-polemical entry has become obscured).
Perhaps generated by the instance of the headword in Isaeus 10.24.
cf. theta 264, theta 295.
