Headword: Pompholugopaphlasmasin
Adler number: pi,2033
Translated headword: in bubble-splutterings
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] in the eddies of the waters. For 'bubbles' are blister-like eddies.[1]
From the [verb] to splutter.[2]
"Just as a bubble disappears when burst, so the memory of a prideful person perishes after death."[3]
Greek Original:
Pompholugopaphlasmasin: en tais dinais tôn hudatôn. pompholuges gar hai phluktainôdeis dinai. apo tou paphlazein. hôsper pompholux rhageisa aphanizetai, houtô mnêmê huperêphanou ollutai meta thanaton.
[1] Aristophanes, Frogs 249 (where the dative plural headword occurs), with comments derived from the scholia there.
[2] cf. Etymologicum Magnum 682.14.
[3] This quotation contains not the headword but one of its constituent nouns (for which see pi 2031, pi 2032). Tentatively attributed by Adler to Aelian, but now identifiable via the TLG as a probable approximation of Evagrius, De octo spiritibus malitiae PG 79.1164, or Antiochus Monachus, Pandecta scripturae sacrae 44. (The proverbial nature of the phrase does, though, leave open the possibility of yet another common or parallel source.)
