Headword: Θιγεῖν
Adler number: theta,384
Translated headword: to touch
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Used] with a genitive. [Meaning] to be in close contact, to be near.[1]
"[... him] who touched with his hands many [episodes] of iron battle."[2]
"Consent to touch a wretched man. Listen, fear not: for no mortal man is able to bear my ills except me."[3]
Greek Original:
Θιγεῖν: γενικῇ. ψαῦσαι, ἐγγίσαι. πολλὰ σιδηρείης χερσὶ θιγόντα μάχης. εἶτ' ἀξιώσατ' ἀνδρὸς ἀθλίου θιγεῖν. πείθεσθε, μὴ δείσητε: τἀμὰ γὰρ κακὰ οὐδεὶς οἷός τε πλὴν ἐμοῦ φέρειν βροτῶν.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly (minus the grammatical point) in other lexica. The headword is aorist active infinitive of θιγγάνω (cf. theta 383). It must be quoted from somewhere (not necessarily the second quotation that follows here; Latte on Hesychius theta581 opts for Euripides, Alcestis 1117, and there are in truth numerous possibilities).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.232.2 (Antipater or Anyte), the epitaph of Philip's son Amyntor, who died in battle in Lydia; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (40), vol. II (102); another excerpt from this epigram at iota 756; and, in n.2 thereto, notes on the problem of attribution. Lydia (lambda 783) is a region in western Asia Minor (present-day Turkey).
[3] Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 1413-1415 (web address 1).
