Headword: Πύκαζε
Adler number: pi,3143
Translated headword: shut
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Sophocles [writes]: "shut [it] quickly: it's not [the job] of a wise physician to chant incantations over a cutting wound."
Greek Original:
Πύκαζε: Σοφοκλῆς: πύκαζε θᾶσσον: οὐ πρὸς ἰατροῦ σοφοῦ θρηνεῖν ἐπῳδὰς πρὸς τομῶντι πήματι.
Notes:
Sophocles, Ajax 581-2. This passage is the locus cited by LSJ for this connotation of the verb πυκάζω (here in imperative singular, second person), which more commonly means 'cover' or 'crowd'.
