Headword: Ταυροπόλα
Adler number: tau,164
Translated headword: worshipped at Tauris, drawn by a yoke of bulls, bull-hunter
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The Artemis[1] who is honored among [the] Tauroi of Scythia.[2] Or [sc. so called] from a part, the overseer of flocks.[3] Or because the same [goddess] is [in] the moon and is drawn by bulls: she whom they call Tauropos.[4] "Surely the Tauropolos set you upon the herd of cows." For they suppose that most of those who go mad are made sick by the moon, because of [its] ruling over nocturnal fantasies.[5]
Greek Original:
Ταυροπόλα: ἡ Ἄρτεμις ἡ ἐν Ταύροις τῆς Σκυθίας τιμωμένη. ἢ ἀπὸ μέρους, τῶν ποιμνίων ἐπιστάτις. ἢ ὅτι ἡ αὐτὴ τῇ σελήνῃ ἐστὶ καὶ ἐποχεῖται ταύροις: ἣν καὶ Ταυρωπὸν ὀνομάζουσιν. ἦ ῥά σε Ταυροπόλος ὥρμησεν ἐπὶ βοῦς ἀγελαίας. τοὺς πολλοὺς γὰρ τῶν μαινομένων ἐκ σελήνης νοσεῖν ὑποτίθενται, διὰ τὸ τῶν νυκτερινῶν δεσπόζειν φαντασμάτων.
Notes:
[1] cf. Hesychius tau252, and (according to Adler) the Ambrosian Lexicon. Here the adjective appears in a Doric feminine nominative singular, extracted from the passage of Sophocles about to be quoted, but at tau 165 the adjective has a thematic (two-termination) form.
[2] Barrington Atlas map 23 grid G4: the Tauric Chersonnese (a.k.a. Crimea) at the top of the Black Sea.
[3] cf. epsilon 2616.
[4] cf. tau 170.
[5] Sophocles, Ajax 172, with scholion.
