Headword: Μεγαλοπρεπής
Adler number: mu,369

Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] spectacular.[1]

Greek Original:
Μεγαλοπρεπής: μεγαλοφανής. ἢ ὁ ἐπὶ μεγέθει ἀναλωμάτων πονούμενος, ἐλευθέριος δὲ ὁ ἐπὶ τὰ συνήθη καὶ εὐτελῆ. Εὐνάπιος: οὔτε ἄλλως τὸ μεγαλοπρεπὲς κατὰ τὴν δίαιταν ἐν ταῖς μάχαις ἐστὶ φιλοκίνδυνον. διαφέρει δὲ μεγαλοπρέπεια ἐλευθεριότητος ὅτι ἡ μὲν ἐν μεγέθει ἀναλωμάτων ἐστιν, ἡ δὲ ἐλευθεριότης περὶ τὰ συνήθη ἀναλώματα ἐνεργεῖ.
