Headword: *yiquristou= *(ermou= kai\ *)/erwtos kai\ *)afrodi/ths
Adler number: psi,99
Translated headword: [of] Whispering Hermes and Eros and Aphrodite
Vetting Status: high
What Theseus was the first to do, as Zopyrus says, since Phaedra, as they say, began to whisper to Theseus against Hippolytos, slandering him. But others say that Hermes [was called] the Whisperer for a more human [reason], because people meeting there [sc. at his temple] used to devise unspeakable deeds and to whisper to each other about what they wanted [to do].[1]
*yiqurismo/s ["whispering"] is speaking evil about those who are present, in the Apostle.[2]
