Headword: Ἔναυλον
Adler number: epsilon,1141
Translated headword: fresh in the memory
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] recorded not long before, still occurring.[1]
The Pisidian [says]: "for always, as it seems, the circumstances resulting from sorrows fresh in the memory give rise to impulses better than [sc. rational] decisions".[2]
Greek Original:
Ἔναυλον: οὐ πρὸ πολλοῦ μνημονευόμενον, ἔτι ἐνηχούμενον. Πισίδης: ἀεὶ γάρ, ὡς ἔοικεν, αἱ περιστάσεις ἐκ τῶν ἐναύλων ἠρεθισμέναι πόνων τίκτουσιν ὁρμὰς κρείττονας βουλευμάτων.
Notes:
This entry illustrates LSJ's ἔναυλος (B) I.2. In this sense the adjective ἔναυλος, -ον is connected with musical practice, literally meaning "in the pipe" (αὐλός ; cf. Maximus of Tyre, Dialexeis 1.7.a5-6; Hesychius epsilon2700); hence the metaphor λόγος ἔ. "ringing in the ears", then "fresh in memory". See e.g. Plato, Menexenus 235C and Laws 678C; Lucian, Dream 5; and further, next note.
[1] The headword is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of the adjective. It must be quoted from somewhere, very probably -- in which event it will be neuter -- Aeschines 3.191, on recalling his father's memories of the restoration of democracy to Athens in 403/2; cf. the scholia there.
[2] George of Pisidia, Heraclias fr. 34.
