Headword: *)anebru/acan
Adler number: alpha,2214
Translated headword: they neighed aloud, they raised a shout
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they created a clamour, they cried out.[1] And e)kbalei=n is how they refer, in a special sense, to striking with ships.[2]
Greek Original:
*)anebru/acan: a)neqoru/bhsan, a)ne/kragon. *)ekbalei=n de\ le/gousin i)di/ws to\ krou=sai tai=s nausi/n.
[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Knights 602, where the headword a)nebru/acsan appears -- though some editors print an emendation to a)nefru/acanq'; either way, the comic conceit is that these rowers are horses.
[2] That is, ramming. The Suda mss do read e)kbalei=n but this should be e)mbalei=n, the verb used in Aristophanes loc.cit, e)mbalo/ntes a)nebru/acan. For e)mba/llw as ramming see LSJ s.v.
Keywords: comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; imagery; military affairs; zoology
