Headword: Εὐοῖ
Adler number: epsilon,3785
Translated headword: Euoi
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[An exclamation] expressive of anger/indignation/passion.
Greek Original:
Εὐοῖ: σχετλιαστικόν.
Notes:
cf. epsilon 3378, epsilon 3787, epsilon 3788.
In ordinary usage, the adjective used here of the Bacchic cry Euoi! applies to complaints of indignation, but that seems inappropriate for Bacchic enthusiasm, unless the cry had by now become a common exclamation for indignation, as seems possible.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion
