Headword: *)anaba/dhn
Adler number: alpha,1796
Translated headword: lifted up; propped up
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] on high, to lie down and have ones legs up. Aristophanes [writes]: "now I take a rest starving with my feet lifted up."[1] Or sitting down on a high place. And again: "how at home when not at home?... His mind is out collecting versicles and not at home while he himself is propped up at home writing a tragedy."[2] He is mocking Euripides as syllogistic and providing the opposite of whatever he says. Such as, "the tongue swore, the mind was unsworn."[3] Such as [here]: he himself is inside but his mind gathering something from what is outside and and flying around. A Homeric way of speaking: for Homer distinguished souls from bodies when he said: "many strong souls, he made them spoils for the dogs."[4] Thus also Aristophanes: "his mind [is] outside, but he himself is inside propped up writing a tragedy."
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] a)naba/dhn kaqh=sqai, [meaning] to lie down raised up.[5]
