Abstract

The fundamentals of "andrapodizing" in Greek historical memory need reexamining on lexical and moral grounds. Defining the term "sell into slavery" proves fallacious. "Enslave," though at core correct, fails to recognize that adult fighting men were not andrapodized when captured, subjugated, and kept alive. Rather, andrapodizing is a type of premeditated and semi-lethal warfare aimed expressly against inhabitants not trained, or too old or too young, to fight back. Soldiers, when andrapodizing, abduct and dominate mainly the youthful-young women and self-mobile girls and boys-rather than other abused inhabitants who are abandoned as rejects, including old people and infants. The pandemic "andrapodizing of a locale or populace" follows this sorting procedure.
