Adler number: upsilon,433

Greek Original:
Ὑπῆρξαν: προκατήρξαντο. οὗτοι γὰρ πρῶτον ὑπῆρξαν ἀδικίης. Ἡρόδοτος. καὶ Αἰλιανός: ὁ δὲ ὑπήρξατο σωφρονεῖν.
Notes:
cf. generally upsilon 161.
[1] Herodotus 4.1.1 (on the Scythians).
[2] Adler comments that this phrase does not occur amongst the fragments of Aelian. It has, though, been identified as a possible reading in his Varia Historia (2.12, on the young Themistocles, theta 124): either aorist ὑπήρξατο or imperfect ὑπέχετο is the verb there.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; geography; historiography; history
