Abstract

Two unrelated words are examined with the aid of the electronic Thesaurus (TLG). Full corpora of the words and their derivates are given in an Appendix. We find that the evidence for the sense of άναγής is less certain than has been commonly believed: the supposed instance in Herod. 2.70 is actually έφύμνιον other alleged instances are due to editorial mistakes or interpolations. The original sense is likely to have been 'pure' (so Hsch. α 4227). έφύμνιον originally meant 'eulogy', 'invocation', being a verbal noun to έφύμνιον : so, e.g., Call. Ap. 98, fr. 384.39, A.R. 2.713, Ath. 15.701c, Ph. 1.535. Due to the common use of invocations as refrains to hymns and similar, the noun took on this sense in scholarly discourse, a semantic process explained by Hephaestion in a passage that has been insufficiently understood (Poëm, 7.1).
