Ab ovo means in Latin „from the beginning, the origin, the egg”. The term refers to one of the twin eggs from which Helen of Troy was born. The eggs were laid by Leda to Zeus, disguised as a swan, either seduced and paired with her, or raped, according to different versions. If Leda hadn`t laid the egg, Helen wouldn`t have been born, so Paris wouldn`t have been able to flee with her, so there wouldn`t have been a Trojan War. [1] The definition of Ab ovo in U.S. law, as defined by lexicographer Arthur Leff in his legal dictionary, is: Literally „of the egg, that is, from the beginning, that is, a rich metamorphic equivalent of ab initio. Whether the metaphorical reference refers to the Roman custom of starting dinner with an egg, or whether it is an implicit answer to the classic question of „what came first” from the chicken`s point of view, is now undetermined.

Ab ovo is a reference to one of the twin eggs from which Helen of Troy was born. The eggs were laid by Leda after mating with Zeus, who was disguised as a swan. If Leda hadn`t laid the egg, Helen wouldn`t have been born, so Paris wouldn`t have been able to flee with her, so there wouldn`t have been a Trojan War, etc. The English literary use of the term comes from Horace`s Ars Poetica, where he describes his ideal epic poet as one who „does not begin the Trojan War from the double egg,” the absolute beginning of events, the first possible chronological point, but tears the listener to the center of things. This use differs from the longer phrase ab ovo usque ad mala, which appears in horace`s satire 1.3.

It refers to the course of a Roman meal, which often began with eggs and ended with fruit, and is similar to the American English expression „soup to nuts”. Thus, ab ovo can also be used to mean a complete or whole thing. The English literary use of the term comes from Horace`s ars Poetica, where he describes his ideal epic poet as one who „does not begin the Trojan War from the double egg” (nec gemino bellum Troianum orditur ab ouo), the absolute beginning of events, the earliest possible chronological point, but tears the listener apart in the middle of things (in media res). This advice is famous for being rejected in Laurence Sterne`s novel The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Aunt Rosa sat him on a table and told him that A B meant. This use differs from the longer phrase ab ovo usque ad mala (wörtl. „from egg to apple”), which appears in Horace`s satire 1.3. It refers to the course of a Roman meal, which often began with eggs and ended with fruit, and is similar to the American English expression „soup to nuts”.

Thus, ab ovo can also be used to mean a complete or whole thing. „Ab ovo usque ad mala.” This phrase translates to „from egg to apples” and was written by the Roman poet Horace. He alluded to the Roman tradition of starting a meal with eggs and ending with apples. Horace also applied ab ovo in an account of the Trojan War, which begins with the mythical egg of Leda, from where Helen was born (whose beauty sparked the war). In both cases, Horace used ab ovo in its literal sense, „of the egg”, but at the end of the 16th century. It was adapted to its modern English meaning of „from the beginning”, perhaps for the first time by Sir Philip Sidney in his An Apology for Poetry: „If [dramatic poets] want to represent a story, they must not (as Horace says) begin Ab ouo: but they must arrive at the principle of this one action.” The flight was piloted by Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, the 50-year-old pilot, and his 27-year-old co-pilot, Fariq Ab Hamid. „Ab Welsh, who was a forward with the Saskatoon Quakers, was the first,” Howe said.
