Headword: Ἐνύπνιον
Adler number: epsilon,1503
Translated headword: vision in sleep, dream
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[It is called ἐνύπνιον "in sleep"] inasmuch as one is sleeping. But [we call] ὄνειρος [a dream] which, when sleep ceases, wakes and stirs up [ὀρῖνον ] the soul. Or [it is derived] from εἴρειν , which means to speak.[1]
"Dreams excite the witless."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐνύπνιον: ἐφ' ὅσον τις ὑπνοῖ. ὄνειρον δὲ παυομένων τῶν ὕπνων, ἐγεῖρον καὶ ὀρῖνον τὴν ψυχήν. ἢ παρὰ τὸ εἴρειν, ὅ ἐστι λέγειν. ὅτι ἐνύπνια ἀναπτεροῦσιν ἄφρονας.
Notes:
[1] Artemidorus 1.1b; on the verb εἴρω , see e.g. epsiloniota 186.
[2] Again at omicron 349. Tentatively attributed to Symeon Metaphrastes by Adler, but actually from the Septuagint (Ecclesiasticus 34.1).
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; dreams; religion
