Headword: Πτοίαν
Adler number: pi,3058
Translated headword: terror
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] commotion, disorder, disturbance, thronging, consternation.[1]
"And a certain terror seized the army on account of the unexpectedness, like [sc. one that would seize those who were] not well-ordered."[2]
Greek Original:
Πτοίαν: πτόησιν, θόρυβον, τάραχον, συναθροισμόν, πτυρμόν. καὶ πτοία μέν τις διὰ τὸ ἀδόκητον ἐπέσχε τὸ στρατόπεδον, οἷα μὴ συντεταγμένους.
Notes:
The headword is a feminine noun in the accusative singular, presumably extracted from some literary context (but not from the quotation given: see n. 2). For the nominative, with similar glossing, see pi 3057.
[1] = Synagoge pi764, Photius pi1480 Theodoridis; cf. Erotianus 107 Klein, Hesychius pi4234 (and other references in Theodoridis).
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta of Constantine Porphyrogenitus) unidentifiable. It contains the nominative singular form of the headword (cf. pi 3057).
