Headword: Ἰηί̈ων
Adler number: iota,223
Translated headword: invoked with a cry
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] of [things] which happen with prayer, or of pestilential [events]; for Ieios [is] Apollo, to whom the purification of pestilences is offered.[1] Or because it is a refrain [sung] in common [to Apollo] and Artemis. Women utter such cries when they are in necessities, and they [Apollo and Artemis] hear the laments. Sophocles [writes]: "the women do not endure the troubles which call for cries of 'ie'": that is, they do not survive their pains.
Greek Original:
Ἰηί̈ων: τῶν μετ' εὐχῆς γινομένων: ἢ τῶν λοιμικῶν: Ἰήϊος γὰρ Ἀπόλλων, εἰς ὃν ἡ ἁγνεία τῶν λοιμῶν ἀναφέρεται: ἢ ὅτι ἐπίφθεγμα κοινόν ἐστι καὶ Ἀρτέμιδος. αἱ δὲ γυναῖκες ἐν ταῖς ἀνάγκαις τὰς τοιαύτας ἀφιᾶσι φωνάς. οἱ δὲ ἀκούουσι τῶν θρηνητικῶν. Σοφοκλῆς: οὐδὲ ἰηί̈ων καμάτων ἀνέχουσι γυναῖκες. τουτέστιν οὐ περιγίνονται τῶν πόνων.
