Headword: Ὑπεξέπεμψεν
Adler number: upsilon,205
Translated headword: sent out secretly
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] led out secretly, sent away. Iamblichus [writes]: "because his sons were youthful and beautiful the father sent them out secretly into the [sc. company of the] shepherds, fearing a violent tyrant."[1]
Greek Original:
Ὑπεξέπεμψεν: ὑπεξήγαγεν, ἀπέπεμψεν. Ἰάμβλιχος: ὄντας ὡραίους καὶ καλοὺς τοὺς παῖδας ὁ πατὴρ ὑπεξέπεμψεν εἰς τοὺς ποιμένας, φοβούμενος τύραννον ὑβριστήν.
Notes:
The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given (though there are also e.g. two instances in Euripides' Hecuba), is aorist indicative active, third person singular, of the verb ὑπεκπέμπω .
