Headword: Ἀρεοπαγίτης
Adler number: alpha,3824
Translated headword: Areopagite
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Spelled in two ways.[1]
And [there is] a saying, "Areopagite", in reference to those who look glum and are solemn and silent.[2]
Also "Ares' chick" [Ἄρεως νεοττός ], and "Ares' child" [Ἄρεως παιδίον ], in reference to the very courageous.[3]
Plato used the first [of these expressions] in Peisandros[4], and Alexandrides the second in Peisandros.[5]
Greek Original:
Ἀρεοπαγίτης: διφορεῖται. καὶ παροιμία, Ἀρεοπαγίτης, ἐπὶ τῶν σκυθρωπῶν καὶ ὑπερσέμνων καὶ σιωπηλῶν. καὶ Ἄρεως νεοττὸς, καὶ Ἄρεως παιδίον, ἐπὶ τῶν θρασυτάτων. κέχρηται τῷ μὲν πρώτῳ Πλάτων Πεισάνδρῳ, τῷ δὲ δευτέρῳ Ἀλεξανδρίδης Πεισάνδρῳ.
Notes:
[1] That is, Areio- as well as this Areo-. (Either way, it meant a member of the Are(i)opagos Council/Court in Athens. See alpha 3838.)
[2] Macarius 2.30.
[3] Macarius 2.31.
[4] Plato Comicus fr. 104 Kock, now 112 K.-A.
[5] Anaxandrides ["Alexandrides" is in error, as Hemsterhuys pointed out: cf. alpha 32] fr. 38 Kock, now 39 K.-A. Both play-titles may, as given here, be the same, though Meineke emended this second one to Pandaros.
