Φιλοκαλοῦμέν τε γὰρ μετ' εὐτελείας καὶ φιλοσοφοῦμεν ἄνευ μαλακίας -> Our love of what is beautiful does not lead to extravagance; our love of the things of the mind does not makes us soft.
Τhucydides, 2.40.1

Greek Monolingual

-έω, Α
αγωνίζομαι με κάποιον σε αθλητικό αγώνα.
[ΕΤΥΜΟΛ. < σῶμα, σώματος + -μαχῶ (< -μαχος < μάχομαι), πρβλ. θηριομαχώ].
