Greek display:    

Headword: Sobaros
Adler number: sigma,758
Translated headword: rushing, violent, swaggering, haughty, imposing
Vetting Status: high
The name was transferred from the dominion of the Sybarites,[1] but others say from se/bas ["awe"], and others from sobei=n ["to scare away, to swagger"], which means to proceed with solemnity.[2]
Aelian [writes]: "[he/she] adorned the temple with impressive offerings."[3]
Greek Original:
Sobaros: apo tês tôn Subaritôn archês metêchthê to onoma, hoi de phasin para to sebas, alloi de apo tou sobein, hoper esti meta semnotêtos proïenai. Ailianos: anathêmasi sobarois ekosmêse ton neôn.
[1] Same improbable etymology already at sigma 756. (On the Sybarites, see sigma 1271, etc.)
[2] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The adjective sobaro/s (already sigma 757 as well as sigma 756, and again sigma 759) is indeed related to the noun se/bas (sigma 175) and the verb sobe/w (sigma 761, sigma 762), as well as to se/bomai "feel awe, revere."
[3] Aelian fr. 70e Domingo-Forasté (part of 67 Hercher).
