Headword: Ψιθυριστοῦ Ἑρμοῦ καὶ Ἔρωτος καὶ Ἀφροδίτης
Adler number: psi,99
Translated headword: [of] Whispering Hermes and Eros and Aphrodite
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
What Theseus was the first to do, as Zopyrus says, since Phaedra, as they say, began to whisper to Theseus against Hippolytos, slandering him. But others say that Hermes [was called] the Whisperer for a more human [reason], because people meeting there [sc. at his temple] used to devise unspeakable deeds and to whisper to each other about what they wanted [to do].[1]
Ψιθυρισμός ["whispering"] is speaking evil about those who are present, in the Apostle.[2]
Greek Original:
Ψιθυριστοῦ Ἑρμοῦ καὶ Ἔρωτος καὶ Ἀφροδίτης: ἅπερ πρῶτος ἐποίησεν, ὥς φησι Ζώπυρος, Θησεύς, ἐπεὶ Φαῖδρα, ὥς φασιν, ἐψιθύριζε Θησεῖ κατὰ Ἱππολύτου, διαβάλλουσα αὐτόν. οἱ δὲ ἀνθρωπινώτερόν φασιν Ἑρμῆν Ψιθυριστήν, παρὰ τὸ ἀνθρώπους ἐκεῖ συνερχομένους τὰ ἀπόρρητα συντίθεσθαι καὶ ψιθυρίζειν ἀλλήλοις, περὶ ὧν βούλονται. Ψιθυρισμὸς δὲ ἡ τῶν παρόντων κακολογία παρὰ τῷ Ἀποστόλῳ.
Notes:
For "whispering" see also psi 98 (and psi 100). The present headword phrase, in the genitive case, appears more fully in other lexica and grammars ("in Athens there are shrines of..."). Zopyrus = FGrH 336 F2.
[1] cf. psi 100.
