Headword: Tetuphômai
Adler number: tau,422
Translated headword: I am demented
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning I am struck by lightening, I am outside of my wits; [sc. the word comes] either from thunder, or from the cudgels brought down upon Typhon, or from the winds called typhoon-like, which of course themselves break off and disperse what is crowded together. For Alcaeus, too, says: "wrapped altogether in smoke [e)tu/fws'], he was taken from his wits."[1]
Greek Original:
Tetuphômai: anti tou embebrontêmai, exô tôn phrenôn gegona: êtoi apo tês brontês, ê apo tôn epi ton Tuphôna katapheromenôn skêptôn, ê apo tôn tuphônikôn kaloumenôn pneumatôn, ha dê kai auta existêsin athroôs katarragenta. kai gar Alkaios phêsi: pampan d' etuphôs', ek d' elegeto phrenas.
Notes:
For the headword see already tau 421. The present entry (also in Photius) follows Harpocration's entry on it, but omits the crucial opening reference: Demosthenes 18.11 (where D. says that he is not in such a state).
[1] Alcaeus fr. 336 Lobel-Page.
