Adler number: nu,523
Translated headword: mind (is) the guest
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. A proverbial phrase] in reference to those overseeing things.[1]
[Note] that Anaxagoras the sophist was called "Mind", because he said that matter and mind guard everything.[2]
Greek Original:
Νοῦν τὸν ξένον: ἐπὶ τῶν ὑφορωμένων τινά. ὅτι Ἀναξαγόρας ὁ σοφιστὴς Νοῦς ἐπεκαλεῖτο, ἐπειδὴ ὕλην καὶ νοῦν πάντων φρουρεῖν εἶπεν.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in Diogenianus (6.85) and other paroemiographers. The headword phrase itself, in the accusative case, must be quoted from somewhere but is unidentifiable.
[2] From alpha 1981.
