Headword: Πρὸς λύραν ᾄδειν
Adler number: pi,2752
Translated headword: to sing to a lyre
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"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.
Notes:
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.
