Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] darkling, which is [to say] clandestine. A son of an unmarried girl, one born from a putative virgin.
Greek Original:
Ὑπὸ σκότῳ δὲ γεγονώς: σκότιος, ὅπερ ἐστὶ λαθραῖος. παρθένιος, ὁ ἐκ παρθένου δοκούσης γεγονώς.
This entry has been partially anticipated at pi 662, q.v.
The headword phrase is identically glossed in Photius, Lexicon upsilon241 Theodoridis (and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 4.499, 6.24, 16.180; Hesychius s.v. σκότιος and Etymologicum Gudianum and ps.-Zonaras s.v. νόθος ). It must be quoted from somewhere, but -- pace Theodoridis -- surely not Plato, Republic 5.461B (ὑπὸ σκότου μετὰ δεινῆς ἀκρατείας γεγονώς ), which is not an exact fit.
