Headword: Σπουδαῖος
Adler number: sigma,970
Translated headword: excellent, good, serious
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] wise.
Virtuous, of good repute; the opposite of a base person.[1]
"But when he learned that the place is holy due to the [presence] in it of a daemon to be taken seriously."[2] That is, to be honored.
[An example of the] construction [of this word]: "I hear that [he] is wealthy [...] but not at all excellent."[3]
Greek Original:
Σπουδαῖος: σοφός. ἐνάρετος, εὐδόκιμος, ὁ ἀντιδιαστελλόμενος τῷ φαύλῳ. ὡς δὲ ἔμαθεν ἱερὸν εἶναι τὸν χῶρον ἐκ τοῦ ἐν αὐτῇ σπουδαζομένου δαίμονος. τουτέστι τιμωμένου. σύνταξις. πλούσιον μὲν ἀκούω, σπουδαῖον δὲ οὐδὲν ὄντα.
Notes:
[1] All these glosses, like the headword itself, are masculine (in the nominative singular) and are therefore descriptions of persons.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Aelian.) It uses the verb σπουδάζω (cf. sigma 967) rather than the adjective σπουδαῖος .
[3] Abbreviated from Aelian fr. 83 Hercher (on L. Annaeus Cornutus); see in full at kappa 2098.
Keywords: definition; economics; ethics; philosophy; religion
