Headword: Φονία ὁρμή
Adler number: phi,571
Translated headword: murderous onslaught
Vetting Status: high
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] φόνιον αἷμα ["murderous blood"].[1] Also [sc. attested is] φόνιος ["murderous"], [meaning] a savage man.[2]
Greek Original:
Φονία ὁρμή. καὶ Φόνιον αἷμα. καὶ Φόνιος, ὁ ὠμὸς ἀνήρ.
The headword phrase (also in the Ambrosian Lexicon, according to Adler) is probably generated by Aristophanes, Birds 345, where the Doric accusative ὁρμὰν φονίαν occurs in a lyric passage (web address 1).
[1] This phrase is attested twice in Euripides: Heracles 1184 and Phoenician Women 933.
[2] Probably, again, from tragedy; LSJ s.v. cites many instances.
