Headword: Ὑπετέμνετο
Adler number: upsilon,401
Translated headword: was being cut off
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] was being hidden.[1] "As the missiles were released at a signal, the light [sc. of the sun] was being cut off."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὑπετέμνετο: ὑπεκρύπτετο. ἀπὸ συνθήματος ἀφιεμένων τῶν βελῶν, τὸ φῶς ὑπετέμνετο.
Notes:
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation, is third person singular, imperfect middle/passive, of ὑποτέμνω . For this verb, see also upsilon 605, upsilon 606, upsilon 607, upsilon 608, upsilon 609, upsilon 610.
[2] Not identified by Adler, but revealed by a TLG search to be from Josephus, Jewish War 3.266. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXVII. (Perhaps an allusion to Herodotus' famous 7.226 "we will fight in the shade.")
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history; military affairs
