Headword: Amphiphorêa
Adler number: alpha,1780
Translated headword: amphora, two-handled jug
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] vessel.[1]
In the Epigrams: "Who filled me -- a two-handled jug fashioned for Dionysus, the wine-vessel for holding Adriatic nectar -- with Demeter's stuff? Was it envy of Bacchus towards me or a lack of a suitable jar for corn-ears? He shamed both: Bacchus has been robbed, and Demeter does not accept drunkenness as a companion."[2]
Greek Original:
Amphiphorêa: angeion. en Epigrammasi: tis me Diônusôi peplasmenon amphiphorêa, tis me ton Adriakou nektaros oinodokon Dêous eplêrôse; tis ho phthonos eis eme Bakchou ê spanis oikeiou teucheos astachuôn; amphoterous êischune: sesulêtai men ho Bakchos, Dêmêtêr de methên suntrophon ou dechetai.
Notes:
The headword, accusative case, might be extracted from the quotation given here but more probably from Homer, Odyssey 24.74.
