Meaning turbulent. He is speaking about Aeschylus; for Aeschylus' expressions have imagination, but when they are tested they have no reality. So these he calls incoherent, as if to say disordered, composed improbably, boastful. But [he calls him] krhmnopoio/s ["speaking crags"] [meaning someone] making big words.[1] Also, "he sounds something loquacious and fire-cracked." Pots are called purorragh= if they break in the kiln in which they are fired.[2]
