Headword: Παρουσία
Adler number: pi,707
Translated headword: resource, presence
Vetting Status: high
This is the term used in reference to an abundance of available things; as it is in Plato's Phaedo: "as we are now in terms of resource."[1] It is frequent in this sense in them [i.e. Attic authors]. But it is also applied in reference to being present, as it is in Sophocles' Bathing-Scene: "the presence of those who are near."[2] Thucydides in [book] 1 [writes]: "for, having captured Byzantium on his earlier presence, [...]."[3] For 'absence' signifies the opposite of this.
Greek Original:
Παρουσία: λέγεται οὕτως ἐπὶ τῆς τῶν παρόντων δαψιλείας: ὡς καὶ ἐν τῷ Πλάτωνος Φαίδωνι: ὡς καὶ νῦν ἔχομεν παρουσίας. καὶ πολύ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τούτου παρ' αὐτοῖς. καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ παρεῖναι δὲ τάσσεται, ὡς καὶ ἐν τοῖς Νίπτροις Σοφοκλέους: τὴν παρουσίαν τῶν ἐγγὺς ὄντων. Θουκυδίδης ἐν τῷ α#: Βυζάντιον γὰρ ἑλὼν τῇ προτέρᾳ παρουσίᾳ. τούτῳ γὰρ τὸ ἐναντίον σημαίνει ἡ ἀπουσία.
