Headword: Αἴθοπος
Adler number: alphaiota,133
Translated headword: fiery-looking
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] of [someone] inflamed.[1] Of [someone] heated in battles. Sophocles used [the word] in reference to the man who had gone out of his mind. "Such an unendurable and inescapable message you have disclosed from a fiery-glancing man."[2]
Greek Original:
Αἴθοπος: διαπύρου. θερμοῦ ἐν ταῖς μάχαις. ὁ δὲ Σοφοκλῆς ἐπὶ τοῦ παρακεκινηκότος ἐχρήσατο. οἵαν ἐδήλωσας ἀνδρὸς αἴθοπος ἀγγελίαν ἄτλατον οὐδὲ φευκτόν.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in Hesychius alpha1877. The headword, genitive singular of this adjective (alphaiota 138, and cf. alphaiota 132), is extracted from the Sophocles quotation about to be given (but see next note); the scholia there give both of the Suda's glosses.
[2] Sophocles, Ajax 221-223 (web address 1). [Editions of Sophocles, however, print here the apparent reading of the Codex Laurentianus before correction, αἴθονος , which would also refer to Ajax' fiery disposition.]
