Title: Antipho. (Woodhouse abbreviation)
Post by: spiros on 15 Apr, 2020, 17:06:35
This is a reference by Woodhouse, not found in his list of abbreviations.

Swerve from the direction of its true course (of a javelin): P. ἔξω τῶν ὅρων τῆς αὑτοῦ πορείας ἐκφέρεσθαι (Antipho. 121).

unlucky
P. and V. δυσδαίμων, δυστυχής, ἀτυχής (Eur., Heracl. 460, but rare V.), Ar. and V. δύσποτμος, δύσμορος (also Antipho. but rare P.), V. ἄμοιρος (also Plat. but rare P.), δύσμοιρος, ἄμμορος, ἄνολβος, Ar. κακοδαίμων; see unhappy.

Odd way to abbreviate Antiphon's name.  Latinized as "Antipho," it shouldn't have a period.  And if transliterating his name from the Greek, why take up space with a period when he could simply have supplied the final "n"?
ἐκφέρεσθαι from Antiphon's Tetralogy Book 2.4.2 (ἐξενεχθὲν).  No idea where Woodhouse gets the number "121."  Methinks he nods (again).
Finally, Antiphon does use δύσμορος in Tetralogy Book 2.11.4.  Shame on Woodhouse for not including that reference.
