[Meaning one] able to shout loud.
Greek Original:
Εὔφωνον κήρυκα: δυνάμενον μέγα βοῆσαι.
Notes:
Fine-voiced heralds were something of a commonplace (Xenophon, Hellenica 2.4.20; Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 713 for a female one); the origin of the present phrase, in the accusative case, is presumably Demosthenes 19.338.
cf. generally epsilon 3803.
