Headword: Epibrisêsin odontas
Adler number: epsilon,2251
Translated headword: presses teeth; would press teeth
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Inasmuch as those who are angry gnash their teeth.
Greek Original:
Epibrisêsin odontas: par' hoson hoi thumoumenoi trizousi tous odontas.
Notes:
The headword phrase (apparently poetic -- the end of a hexameter line) must be a quotation, but is unidentifiable.
Ita verb seems to be an aorist subjunctive in the third person singular (though the parallel entry in ps.-Zonaras appears to have third person plural indicative). Compare in any event e)pibri/ssh|si (with 'teeth' implicit) in Theocritus, Idylls 21.4.
For the verb see also epsilon 2023, epsilon 2250.
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; imagery; meter and music; poetry
