Adler number: pi,1268
Translated headword: enfolding
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he] having rolled himself around.[1] "He lies enfolding [it], with the sword hidden."[2] [He] says [this] about Ajax.
Greek Original:
Περιπτυχής: περικεκυλισμένος. κεῖται κρυφαίῳ φασγάνῳ περιπτυχής. περὶ τοῦ Αἴαντός φησι.
Notes:
Sophocles, Ajax 899 (web address 1), with scholion. The headword, extracted from the line, is a two-ending adjective in the masculine and feminine nominative singular; see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The gloss, attested only here and in the Sophoclean scholia, is the perfect middle/passive participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb περικυλίνδω , I roll around; see LSJ s.v.
[2] The line is spoken by Tecmessa, on discovering the hero's body. [In her critical apparatus Adler notes that mss GVM wrongly transmit the adjective accompanying 'sword' as κορυφαίῳ (dative singular of κορυφαῖος , "the top of" -- perhaps to the hilt).]
