eousque

Postby Tertius Robertus » Fri Jan 02, 2009 6:03 pm

!!!

Can someone explain me the meaning of eousque? I have never seen this before, nor could I find it in dictionaries and magical parsing machines (diogenes, words etc).

I saw it here: Joannis Frensheimii supplementorum livianorum liber secundus. (paragraph XXVII)

Deinde, quia belli propinquus metus nullus erat, paulatim otio et graecae consuetudinis imitatione in luxum rosoluti, praesentemque copiam cum dura et laboriosa vita, quam eousque egerant, comparantes, opportunitatem urbis, et incolarum felicitatem, sermone cupidatis et invidia pleno, in circulis et hospitiis suis agitare cœperunt


any clues?
cheers!

I think it's just eo usque written as one word so "until that time" or something similar -- in the Lewis-Short entry for eo, it has:
Of time, up to the time, until, so long, usually with usque, and followed by dum, donec: usque eo premere capita, dum illae captum amitterent, Cic. N. D. 2, 49, 124; Liv. 23, 19, 14; Tac. A. 4, 18: eo usque flagitatus est, donec ad exitium dederetur, id. ib. 1, 32; Quint. 11, 3, 53: eo usque vivere, donec, etc., Liv. 40, 8; cf. Col. 4, 24, 20; 4, 30, 4.—Rarely by quamdiu: eo usque, quamdiu ad fines barbaricos veniretur, Lampr. Alex. Sev. 45.


It also matches up with quousque which does have its own entry.

(OLD) eousque = eo (adv) + usque = "to such an extent, until that moment, when"
ut dicit modus.irrealis
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
