etta

, mfn. (= ettaka, q.v.), so great, so much, so
many;
na sakkā puññaṁ saṅkhātuṁ im' ~am api kena ci,
Dhp 196 (im' ~aṁ api kena cī ti imaṁ ettakaṁ imaṁ
ettakan ti attho, Dhp-a III 252,12); — ~ato (abl.): sace pi
~ato (CeEe so; Be etato) bhiyyo (BeCe so; Ee bhīyo)
āgamissanti itthiyo, S I 185,26 (ettakā [vdl. ettako,
ettato] bhiyyo ti etasmā sahassā atirekatarā, Spk I 269,1)
= Th 1211 (which reads ettakā [BeCeEe so; v. ll. etthato,
etthatā] for ettato; ettakā [v. ll. ettako, ettato] bhiyyo ti
sace imāhi itthīhi bhiyyo pi itthiyo, Th-a III 189,19-20); —
Rem.: the many v. ll. show that there was no certainty
about the correct readings in
S and Th. Since, however,
the syntax requires an abl. to be construed with
bhiyyo,
as the ct.s show, all v.ll. can probably be excluded
except
ettato (Be etato [= etasmā] is no dowbt an editorial
"correction''' based on the ct.
) and ettakā. Th maywell
represent an edited version of
S.
