Headword: *tauto\n pe/ponqa tw=| th=s paroimi/as
Adler number: tau,186
Translated headword: the same thing as the proverb has happened to me
Vetting Status: high
"[The same thing as the proverb has happened to me:] describing your dream to you. Surely you would suppose that we do not willingly (for I hesitate to say 'unwillingly') allow a man both fair and good to depart from us [even] for a short time. Perhaps it would serve as an explanation in some small way for me and you and him, if he should be your [friend] and if I should meet you through him. But none of these things about him are for me [to say], albeit it is appropriate to speak to you about him, you surely know. For if I point him out to you now, the proverb has happened to me: describing your dream to you."

This material is unidentifiable; Adler notes Bernhardy's suggested attribution to the emperor Julian. (No such 'proverb' is registered by the paroemiographers.)
See also tau 802, which reproduces the 'proverb' and the last sentence of this entry; and cf. gamma 349.
