Headword: Γεγαννυμένος
Adler number: gamma,89
Translated headword: exulting in
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning one who is] glorying in.
"How was a man exulting from childhood in royal pomp and great flattery and choosing a very barbarous way of life thus disposed?"[1]
Greek Original:
Γεγαννυμένος: ἐπαγαλλόμενος. πῶς δὲ ἀνὴρ βασιλείῳ τύφῳ ἐκ παίδων καὶ κολακείᾳ πολλῇ γεγαννυμένος δίαιτάν τε λαχὼν βαρβαρωτάτην οὕτω διατεθῆναι.
Notes:
The headword participle purports to be extracted from the quotation given, but see next note.
[1] An approximation of Agathias, Histories 2.28, on Chosroes. See in full at chi 418, with other changes from the original. (Common to both Suda entries, though, is that the participle transmitted as γεγαννυμένος should be γεγανωμένος ; cf. gamma 88.)
Keywords: biography; children; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history
