A.one taken in war and sold as a slave, whether originally slave or free, captive, Hdt.3.125,129,5.31, etc.: orig. dist. from “δοῦλος, ὅσοι δὲ ἦσαν ξεῖνοί τε καὶ δοῦλοι . . ἐν ἀνδραπόδων λόγῳ ποιεύμενος εἶχε” Id.3.125; “τὰ ἀ. πάντα, καὶ δοῦλα καὶ ἐλεύθερα” Th.8.28; “τὰ ἀ. τὰ δοῦλα πάντα ἀπέδοτο” X.HG1.6.15.
II. low fellow, 'creature', Pl.Grg.483b, Thg.130b, X.Mem.4.2.39, D.Chr.31.109; of a female slave, Pherecr.16 D.
III. as a playful mode of address, Arr.Epict.1.4.14, al.—Hom., Il.7.475, has Ep.dat.pl. ἀνδραπόδεσσι (as if from ἀνδράπους), where Aristarch. proposed to read ἀνδραπόδοισι; but it is almost certain that the word was post-Homeric, and the line was rejected on that account by Zenod. and Ar.Byz. (Orig. pl.; formed on the analogy of τετράποδα, cf. “τετραπόδων πάντων καὶ ἀνδραπόδων” Foed.Delph.Pell.1.B7. Sg. in X.Ath.1.18, etc.)
