Headword: Παρίας λίθου
Adler number: pi,643
Translated headword: of Parian marble
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Aelian [writes]: "and displayed below the stone even now is an image of Theopompos [made] of Parian marble,[1] the inscription agreeing as to his name and that of his father [...], and the representation of what is happening is very clear. [There is] a bed, itself also of marble."
Greek Original:
Παρίας λίθου: Αἰλιανός: δείκνυται καὶ νῦν ὑπὸ λίθῳ Θεοπόμπου, πατρόθεν ὁμολογοῦντος αὐτὸν τοῦ ἐπιγράμματος, εἴδωλον Παρίας λίθου, καὶ ἔστι τὸ ἴνδαλμα τοῦ πάθους μάλα ἐναργές, κλίνη, καὶ αὐτὴ λίθου.
Notes:
The headword phrase, in the genitive case, is evidently extracted from the quotation given: Aelian, Varia Historia fr. 102 Domingo-Forasté (99 Hercher). See theta 171, with notes and bibliography.
[1] cf. pi 644.
