Headword: Ἄγαμαι καρδίας
Adler number: alpha,138
Translated headword: I admire at heart
Vetting Status: high
An Atticism, meaning I marvel [at].[1]
Aelian [writes]: "since, also, the [behaviour? remark?] of Menelaus to Paris the son of Priam I neither praise nor admire."[2]
"Personally I admire these men as well, and the Acarnanian most of all above these men. For he was eager to share with his men the things that he recognized they were going to suffer."[3]
Greek Original:
Ἄγαμαι καρδίας: Ἀττικῶς, ἀντὶ τοῦ θαυμάζω. Αἰλιανός: ἐπεὶ καὶ τὴν τοῦ Μενέλεω πρὸς τὸν τοῦ Πριάμου Πάριν οὔτε ἐπαινῶ οὔτε ἄγαμαι. ἐγὼ δὲ ἄγαμαι καὶ τούσδε τοὺς ἄνδρας: τὸν δὲ Ἀκαρνᾶνα μέγιστον καὶ πρὸ τούτων. ἃ γὰρ πεισομένους ἐγίνωσκε, τούτων ἐπεθύμησε τοῖς ἀνδράσι κοινωνῆσαι.
[1] The headword phrase occurs at Aristophanes, Acharnians 489 (web address 1). For the comment, cf. Timaeus, Platonic Lexicon s.v. ἄγαμι .
[2] Aelian fr.125b Domingo-Forasté (122 Hercher). The allusion is presumably to something in Homer, Iliad 3 (where Menelaus and Paris fight a duel).
[3] Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 4.23; again (in part) at alpha 805.
