Headword: Θουριομάντεις
Adler number: theta,418
Translated headword: Thourioi-seers, Thurii-seers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
He passed from the generic to the specific. For in saying that the clouds nourish all the sophists, he introduced particular ones. 'Thourioi-seers' [are] not the seers from Thourioi but the ones sent to Thourioi. For after the capture of Synaris[1] they [sc. its inhabitants] took their name from the Thourian spring. The Athenians sent out ten men for its foundation, one of whom was Lampon the seer, to be the expounder of the foundation of the city.
Greek Original:
Θουριομάντεις: ἀπὸ τοῦ γενικοῦ ἐχώρησεν ἐπὶ τὸ κατ' εἶδος. εἰπὼν γάρ, ὅτι πάντας αἱ νεφέλαι τρέφουσι τοὺς σοφιστάς, ἐπήγαγε τίνας. θουριομάντεις δὲ οὐ τοὺς ἀπὸ Θουρίου μάντεις, ἀλλὰ τοὺς εἰς Θούριον πεμφθέντας. ἁλούσης γὰρ Συνάρεως, Θούριοι ἐκλήθησαν ἀπὸ κρήνης Θουρίας. ἐξέπεμψαν δὲ εἰς τὴν κτίσιν αὐτῶν Ἀθηναῖοι δέκα ἄνδρας, ὧν καὶ Λάμπων ἦν ὁ μάντις, ἐξηγητὴς ἐσόμενος τῆς κτίσεως τῆς πόλεως.
Notes:
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 332, where the headword (coined by him) appears in the accusative case.
