Headword: *)eribreme/tas
Adler number: epsilon,2978
Translated headword: loud-thundering
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] one making large crashes. Aristophanes in Frogs calls Aeschylus [this],[1] in regard to the thundering and boastfulness of his words; such are indeed those [words] at the beginning of the Prometheus: "To earth's remotest limit we come, to the Scythian land, an untrodden solitude. And now, Hephaestus, yours is the charge to observe the mandates laid upon you by the Father--to clamp this miscreant upon the high craggy rocks in shackles of binding adamant that cannot be broken."[2] And again: "Now drive the adamantine wedge's stubborn edge straight through his chest with your full force."[3]
