ἔναντα: an epic form, sometimes admitted in Attic poetry. Eur. Or. 1478 (lyr.) “ἔναντα δ᾽ ἦλθεν Πυλάδης”. Aristoph. Eq. 342τῷ καὶ πεποιθὼς ἀξιοῖς ἐμοῦ λέγειν ἔναντα”; Triclinius gave here the Hellenistic form “ἔναντι” (St Luke i. 8), which seems to be confined to the LXX., Apocrypha, and N.T.; see n. by Moulton in his ed. of Winer's Grammar, p. 591 (8th Engl. ed.).
