Adler number: omicron,1056
Translated headword: mob
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] disturbance/disruption.
Greek Original:
Ὄχλος: ἡ ταραχή.
Note:
Both headword and gloss are words used by Epicurus and are in close connection: “the mob” (ὄχλος ) can be a cause of disturbance (ταραχή , the opposite of one of the “katastematic” or stable pleasures: “freedom of disturbance”, ἀταραξία ). The term “mob” appears in Vatican Saying 67 where Epicurus recommends that, in order to reach a free life, one has to avoid acquiring great wealth, because the task is not easy without slavery to the mob or those in power. See also Vatican Saying 81; cf. omicron 1054.
