Headword: *ti/ ga/r me
Adler number: tau,557
Translated headword: For why does this grieve me
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"[For why does this grieve me], when having died in report I am saved in fact and bring out glory for myself? I think that no saying [that comes] with profit [is] bad. For already I have often seen even wise men dying vainly in report, but not in fact."[1]
Aristophanes [writes]: "for what has escaped you, [of] what should [escape] a wise man? How are you not prudent, [in] whatever is needful for one who is approved for a clever mind, for resourceful boldness." That is, what has escaped you? For what do you not do, which is right for the knowledgeable persons?" But pori/mw| ["resourceful"] [is used] meaning well-resourced for contriving [things].

Notes:
[1] Sophocles, Electra 59-63 (web address 1). "But not in fact" is an addition to Sophocles' text. See also lambda 843 and eta 88.
[2] Aristophanes, Peace 1027-1030 (web address 2), with scholion. The chorus is addressing Trygaeus. This quotation is related to the previous only in that it also begins with ti/ ga/r "for what/why/how."
