Headword: Εὐποτμία
Adler number: epsilon,3660
Translated headword: good fortune
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] good luck.[1]
"I envy this man his good fortune."[2]
And elsewhere: "they enjoy all good fortune, being borne by fair winds."[3] And again: "they passed their lives in good fortune and in great prosperity."[4]
Greek Original:
Εὐποτμία: εὐτυχία. ζηλῶ τοῦτον τῆς εὐποτμίας. καὶ αὖθις: εὐποτμίας δὲ ἀπολαύουσι πάσης ἐξ οὐρίων φερόμενοι. καὶ πάλιν: ἐν εὐποτμίᾳ τε καὶ εὐδαιμονίᾳ διῆγον πολλῇ.
Notes:
[1] Same glossing in the scholia to Lucian, Dialogues of the gods 17.1; and cf. generally epsilon 3661.
[2] Quotation (also in ps.-Zonaras s.v.) unidentifiable.
[3] Adler notes Valckenaer's attribution of this quotation to Aelian. But in fact, as a TLG search reveals, it is Theodoret on Psalm 72 LXX (PG 80.1441d). See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXII.
[4] A fuller version of this quotation or paraphrase is given at xi 9; there it is given as the historian Xanthus' description of the reign of the Lydian king Alkimos. "They" are the Lydian people.
