ἄλλος : other, another, (οἱ) ἄλλοι, the rest; freq. in antithetical and reciprocal clauses, ἄλλος μὲν.. ἄλλος δέ, ἄλλοθεν ἄλλος, etc.; very often idiomatic and untranslatable, ἔκτοθεν ἄλλων | μνηστήρων, ‘from the others, the suitors,’ i. e. from the through of suitors, Od. 1.132. Phrases: ἄλλο τόσον, as much ‘more’; ἰδὼν ἐς πλησίον ἄλλον, with a look towards his next ‘neighbor’; ἔξοχον ἄλλων, ἄλλο δέ τοι ἐρέω (marking a transition), similarly ἄλλ̓ (ἄλλο) ἐνόησε (a ‘new’ idea). In Od. 20.213, ἄλλοι implies ‘strangers,’ i. e. other than the rightful owners; so ‘untrue’ (other than the true) is implied, Od. 4.348.
