Adler number: pi,2752
Translated headword: to sing to a lyre
Vetting Status: high
"The business concerning our companion was handled moderately, and not so as to incite the nemesis of god and of men. She [Nemesis] in fact is clearly the one about whom we sing to a lyre [the following verses ...]."[1]
Greek Original:
Πρὸς λύραν ᾄδειν. τὰ κατὰ τὸν ἑταῖρον ἡμῶν μετρίως ἐπράχθη, καὶ οὐχ ὡς ἂν κινῆσαι θεοῦ τε καὶ ἀνθρώπων νέμεσιν. αὕτη μέντοι σαφῶς ἐστι, περὶ ἧς πρὸς λύραν ᾄδομεν.
The headword phrase is presumably generated by the one in the quotation given.
[1] A close approximation of Synesius, Epistle 95 p.235a. For Nemesis see generally nu 159, nu 162, nu 163.
