Headword: *(upo/blhton
Adler number: upsilon,455
Translated headword: bastard, counterfeit, suppositious
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning something] not true, but false. From those who substitute children into families. Sophocles [says]: "your bastard mouth has come here."[1] And elsewhere: "no one will say, Ajax, that you have spoken a bastard word, but one from your own heart."[2] Meaning the things you said were true to your intent, not counterfeit; so you said [words] proper for you. But now stop, having put everything upon us.
