Adler number: omicron,24
Translated headword: to be puffed up
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to carry one's neck high and to surround oneself with feelings of self-importance, to exult in oneself.[1]
Aristophanes says in his play concerning Peace: "now strain to the utmost, everyone, and pull [her] out with these cables."[2] Then when they are not dragging [Peace out] he says: "and you are puffed up." And again Aristophanes [says]: "how puffed up you are."[3] Meaning how you put in such effort pretending to drag with the rope, but you do not drag [her out]; or you surround yourself with self-importance and you make false pretensions and you are arrogant. They were not dragging [her out], as if war-lovers, or as if outside the treaty.
