The Suda On Line (SOL) presents this week's edition of Suda Classics - a
weekly message featuring the best of recent additions to the Suda On Line
database of translations from the Suda.  For a change of pace, this third
week we feature the entire text of a translation, one without much
commentary: Malcolm Heath's translation of Suda lemma Alpha 1632 Adler,
"Amous" (Amoun). Use this url to see the entry in context in the Suda On
Line database (there should be no spaces):

Headword: Amous
Adler number: alpha,1632
Translated headword: Amous (Amoun), An Egyptian

Translation: An Egyptian. As a young man he was averse to marriage; but when
some of his relatives encouraged him not to condemn marriage, but to take a
wife, he complied and entered into a marriage. Giving the virgin much
exhortation, he persuaded her to give up the secular life before they had
sexual intercourse. Having made this renunciation, they both retired to
mount Nitria and for a short time lived the ascetic life together on their
own. Antony saw the soul of this Amoun being taken up to heaven.[1] He never
saw himself naked, saying that it was improper for a monk to see even his
own body naked. There was also another monk, Didymus, who lived for 90
years, and did not spend time with any other human being until his death.

Note: [1] Athanasius Life of Antony 60
Bibliography: Socrates Ecclesiastical History 4.23
Word Type: person
Keywords: biography; gender and sexuality; religion; women
Translated by: Malcolm Heath

Please think of the posting of a translation as one of the Suda Classics as
a request for comments: after you've taken a look at the entry in the
database, please feel free to forward any comments you have for correction
or improvement to the SOL Managing Committee at the address below. Perhaps
you'd like to volunteer your services as an editor (vetting completed
entries like the above for possible improvements) or translator - other
important entries we'd like to see translated soon are those for Job (Iota
471) and gnosis (Gamma 343-345).  If you're interested in volunteering as
either a translator or an editor, please register at the SOL website,
http://www.stoa.org/sol/. Next week, we hope to have a short, heavily
annotated entry ready for your perusal, and the long-promised page with
previous weeks' Suda Classics.

[Mailings of Suda Classics are made on or after Sunday evenings 8:00 pm EST.
Suda Classics are archived by the Suda list and by a few other mailing
