Headword: Ἀγαλματοφορούμενος
Adler number: alpha,136
Translated headword: image-bearing, image-carrying, enshrined as an image
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] carrying in one's mind images or impressions of things that one has thought of. Philo [sc. uses the term] this way.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἀγαλματοφορούμενος: ἀγάλματα ἤτοι τύπους τῶν νοηθέντων φέρων ἐν ἑαυτῷ. οὕτως Φίλων.
Notes:
Same entry in Photius (Lexicon alpha91 Theodoridis) and elsewhere. The headword is present middle/passive participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb ἀγαλματοφορέω .
[1] Although the gloss has already defined the headword participle as though it were active, Philo Judaeus [see phi 448, and generally OCD(4) pp.1134-5] uniformly uses it in a passive sense, i.e. "enshrined". Adler and Theodoridis both cite De vita Mosis 1.27; see also De mutatione nominum 21; and cf. De somnis 1.32, De vita Mosis 2.11, 2.209.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; imagery; philosophy
