Adler number: omicron,425
Translated headword: gallows-refuse
Vetting Status: high
Hyperides in the [speech] Against Demades [says]: "concerning which, the stele would have been far more justly set up amongst the gallows-refuse than amongst our shrines".[1] Some, including Aristarchus, maintain that oxythymia is the term applied to the wooden [gallows] from which certain people are hanged, [the term deriving] from being quick [oxys] to anger [thymos]; these [gallows] they cut down and root out and burn. But Didymus asserts that oxythymia is the name for refuse and filth; for [he says that] this is taken out to crossroads whenever they purify houses.
