Headword: Παῦπερ
Adler number: pi,815
Translated headword: pauper
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This is what Constantius, the father of Constantine the Great,[1] used to be called, because of his frugal way of life; he had not acquired even silver plate[2] in quantity, nor anything else intended to be luxurious; instead, for religious and public festivities he used to deck out his palaces with the silver and upholsteries of private individuals.
Greek Original:
Παῦπερ: οὕτως ἐκαλεῖτο Κωνστάντιος, ὁ πατὴρ Κωνσταντίνου τοῦ μεγάλου, διὰ τὸ λιτῶς διαιτᾶσθαι, ὡς μηδὲ κοῖλον ἄργυρον κεκτῆσθαι εἰς πλῆθος, μηδ' ἕτερόν τι πρὸς τρυφὴν βλέπον: ἀλλὰ παρὰ τὰς ἱερὰς καὶ δημοτελεῖς εὐφροσύνας τῷ τῶν ἰδιωτῶν ἀργύρῳ καὶ στρωμναῖς ἐκόσμει τὰ βασίλεια.
Notes:
John of Antioch fr.168 FHG (4.602), now 252 Roberto; already in part at kappa 2541.
The headword is not a translation, but a transliteration, of the Latin word pauper.
[1] Constantine: see kappa 2284.
[2] Literally 'hollow silver'. See generally LSJ s.v. κοῖλος , I.
