Headword: Ψαλλομένης
Adler number: psi,12
Translated headword: being plucked
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] being pulled.[1] But strictly speaking psallein is plucking the strings with the tips of the fingers.[2]
In the Epigrams: "and a red-daubed rope being plucked by a rod's tip."[3]
Greek Original:
Ψαλλομένης: τιλλομένης. κυρίως δέ ἐστι ψάλλειν τὸ ἄκροις τοῖς δακτύλοις τῶν χορδῶν ἅπτεσθαι. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: μιλτοφυρῆ τε σχοῖνον ὑπ' ἀκρονύχῳ ψαλλομένην κανόνι.
Notes:
[1] The headword, evidently quoted from somewhere (but not the quotation given), is present middle/passive participle, feminine genitive singular, of ψάλλω (cf. psi 13).
[2] This definition should perhaps have appeared under psi 9 (q.v.).
[3] Greek Anthology 6.103.5-6 (with the corresponding accusative of this participle); see already mu 1071 and note 3 there.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; meter and music; poetry; science and technology
