Headword: Ὄνειαρ
Adler number: omicron,333
Translated headword: dream
Vetting Status: high
[ὄνειαρ means the same as] ὄνειρον .[1]
"Ah great famous dream of the wise son of Battos: verily you were of horn and not of ivory." Instead of [using the word ἀληθής ] 'true'; from the Homeric [saying], "for there are two gates of fleeting dreams."[2]
Greek Original:
Ὄνειαρ: ὄνειρον. ἆ μέγα Βαττιάδαο σοφοῦ περίπυστον ὄνειαρ: ἦ ῥ' ἐτεὸν κεράων, οὐδ' ἐλέφαντος ἔης. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀληθής: παρὰ τὸ Ὁμηρικόν: δοιαὶ γάρ τε πύλαι ἀμενηνῶν εἰσιν ὀνείρων.
[1] The headword, illustrated by the quotation given, is an epic/poetic variant of ὄναρ (omicron 326).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.42.1-2; Homer, Odyssey 19.562. For the equivalence of ἐτεός and ἀληθής , see epsilon 3285. Callimachus was the son of Battos (see kappa 227), and his famous dream of the Muses is related in his Aitia.
