Headword: Δυσμίσητος
Adler number: delta,1661
Translated headword: detestable, detested
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] one who/that which is altogether hated.[1]
"The trees [are] detestable, and if ever they see the wall of Troy, shed their dry foliage."[2]
Greek Original:
Δυσμίσητος: ὁ πάνυ ἀπεχθόμενος. δένδρεα δυσμίσητα, καὶ ἤν ποτε τεῖχος ἴδωσι Τρώιον, αὐαλέαν φυλλοχοεῦσι κόμην.
Notes:
[1] The headword adjective, masculine nominative singular, might be generated by the accusative plural supposedly in the quotation given (but see next note) or quoted in its own right from somewhere else, probably Lycophron, Alexandra 841 (on a monster).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.141.5-6 (Antiphilos of Byzantium), on the elms around the tomb of Protesilaus (Protesilaos, pi 2961 (q.v.)); cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 106-107), (vol. II, 131-132), and a further extract from this epigram at alpha 904. Adopting a suggestion of Brodaeus (Jean Brodeau, 1500-1563), Gow and Page (vol. I, 106) read δυσμήνιτα "wrathful" instead of the Suda's δυσμίσητα .
