Headword: Ἰσχύων
Adler number: iota,723
Translated headword: powerful
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
["The god,] who overtakes even the winged eagle and outstrips the dolphin in the sea".[1] Pindar says this.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἰσχύων: ὃς καὶ πτερόεντ' ἀετὸν κίχε καὶ θαλασσαῖον παραμείβεται δελφῖνα: Πίνδαρος τοῦτό φησιν.
Notes:
[1] The implication is "powerful as a god". ἰσχύων is often found in Jewish/Christian contexts to describe God’s power, e.g. Esther 4:17z LXX: ὁ θεὸς ὁ ἰσχύων ἐπὶ πάντας ["God powerful over all"].
[2] Pindar, Pythian 2.50-1 (web address 1), quoted in the scholia to Sophocles, Electra 696 (where the present headword occurs). See also theta 180, and generally iota 724.
