Sophocles [writes]: "Apollo! [hear me] who have come forward with an importunate hand, with much of what I have. And now, Lycean Apollo, through what means I have, I pray, I supplicate, I implore, be a gracious helper in these decisions, and show humans the rewards [for such impiety]."[3]
Greek Original:
Λιπαρεῖ χειρί: ἀντὶ τοῦ λιπαρῶς, καὶ συνεχῶς. καὶ Λιπαρεῖ, πλουσίᾳ ἀφθόνῳ. Σοφοκλῆς: Ἄπολλον, ἥ σε πολλὰ δὴ ἀφ' ὧν ἔχοιμι λιπαρεῖ προὔστην χερί. νῦν δ', ὦ Λύκει' Ἄπολλον, ἐξ οἵων ἔχω, αἰτῶ, προπιτνῶ, λίσσομαι, γενοῦ πρόφρων ἡμῖν ἀρωγὸς τῶνδε τῶν βουλευμάτων καὶ δεῖξον ἀνθρώποις τἀπιτίμια.
[1] The headword phrase, in the dative singular (including the adjective λιπαρής ; cf. lambda 578, lambda 583) comes from the scholia to Sophocles, Electra 1378: see below. The related verb is defined at lambda 579.
[2] Comparable definitions in e.g. the Lexicon on Gregory of Nazianzus (Coislin ms.) "λιπαρῶς : luxuriously, richly" and Hesychius lambda1084 "λιπαρέως : abundantly". This is properly the adverbial form of λιπαρός "oily, fatty, rich", which has here been mistakenly attached to this adjective.
[3] Sophocles, Electra 1377-1382 (web address 1); cf. tau 104.
