Headword: Βρόμος
Adler number: beta,548
Translated headword: roar
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Properly [this means the] sound of fire.[1]
"And a heavy roar of a nimble drum." In the Epigrams.[2] And elsewhere: "no longer will you settle the roar of the winds, nor the hailstorm."[3]
Greek Original:
Βρόμος: ἦχος πυρὸς κυρίως. καὶ κούφοιο βαρὺν τυμπάνου βρόμον. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι. καὶ αὖθις: οὐκέτι κοιμίσεις ἀνέμων βρόμον, οὐχὶ χάλαζαν.
Notes:
[1] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 14.396, where the headword occurs; likewise or similarly in other lexica.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.165.5.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.8.3 (Antipater of Sidon), on the death of Orpheus, more fully at sigma 1668; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (14-15), vol. II (42), and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 1063 and delta 1552. Orphic legends recount his control of rocks, trees, and animals, but -- albeit less characteristically than as granted here -- also over more elemental phenomena such as winds and precipitation (Gow and Page, vol. II (42)).
