Headword: Ἀπραγμοσύνη
Adler number: alpha,3682
Translated headword: indifference, idleness, quietude
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] neglect, laissez-faire.
"Justinian called their indifference toward the Cutriguri unjust."[1]
Also [sc. attested is] ἀπραγμοσύνη , a type of flower. Aristophanes in Clouds [writes]: "[he] smelling of bindweed and of quietude."[2] Meaning smelling of every sweet smell and of security. Or not being meddlesome. But others [say] that apragmosyne grew as a [sc. wild] plant in [the] Academy.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἀπραγμοσύνη: ἡ καταφρόνησις, ἡ ἀμέλεια. ὁ δὲ Ἰουστινιανὸς ἄδικον αὐτῶν ἀπεκάλει τὴν ἐς Κουτριγούρους ἀπραγμοσύνην. καὶ Ἀπραγμοσύνη, εἶδος ἄνθους. Ἀριστοφάνης Νεφέλαις: μίλακος ὄζων καὶ ἀπραγμοσύνης. ἀντὶ τοῦ πάσης εὐωδίας ὄζων καὶ ἀσφαλείας. ἢ οὐ πολυπραγμονῶν. οἱ δὲ ὅτι ἀπραγμοσύνη φυτὸν ἐν Ἀκαδημίᾳ φυόμενον.
Notes:
cf. generally alpha 3683.
[1] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 8.18.18; cf. kappa 2197.
[2] Aristophanes, Clouds 1007 (web address 1 below); cf. already alpha 774 and again mu 1058. What now follows comes from the scholia on this line: see next note.
[3] The present headword as a botanical name is duly registered by LSJ s.v., IV, but Aristophanes of Byzantium (the authority for the scholiasts and Hesychius here) probably got this wrong; see Dover's edition ad loc.
