Headword: Atuphia
Adler number: alpha,4398
Translated headword: lack of delusion, modesty
Vetting Status: high
[Means] humility. And [the related adjective] a)/tufon in [Plato's] Phaedrus [means] unharmful;[1] since delusion [tu=fon] harms. And e)pitequmme/non ["inflamed"] likewise; for the [verb] qu/yai ["to inflame"] [means] to kindle. Also [sc. attested are] quma/lwpes, the charcoals left by burning, the half-burned ones.[2] Also [sc. attested is the phrase] a)tu/fou moi/ras ["of undeluded fate"], [meaning] of that unharmed by arrogance.[3]
They say the wise man is a)/tufos. For his attitude to good repute and ill-repute is the same. And there is someone else [they call] a)/tufos: he who is classified as commonplace, that is base.[4]
"But they, dressed for peace [and] conducting the ritual without bodyguards, came most modestly." Aelian says [this].[5]
