Headword: Θαρραλέον
Adler number: theta,47
Translated headword: bold, of good courage
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] boldness.[1]
Θρασύς ["rash"] differs from θαρραλέος ["bold"]: [this is] because the rash man has an accusation of being bad, but the bold man is praised as good. Hyperides says [this] in the Kythnian [Speech]: "rash men do everything without consideration, but bold men endure steadfastly with consideration the dangers that befall them."[2]
Greek Original:
Θαρραλέον: θάρσος. Θρασὺς θαρραλέου διαφέρει: ὅτι ὁ μὲν θρασὺς διαβολὴν ἔχει κακὸς ὤν, ὁ δὲ θαρραλέος ὡς ἀγαθὸς ἐπαινεῖται. Ὑπερίδης φησὶν ἐν τῷ Κυθνιακῷ: οἱ μὲν θρασεῖς ἄνευ λογισμοῦ πάντα πράττουσιν, οἱ δὲ θαρραλέοι μετὰ λογισμοῦ τοὺς προσπεσόντας κινδύνους ἀνέκπληκτοι ὑπομένουσιν.
Notes:
cf. theta 48 (and theta 57).
[1] Neuter adjective glossed with an abstract noun, as also in Photius and other lexica.
[2] Hyperides fr. 117 Jensen (the sole surviving fragment of this speech about Kythnos, a small Aegean island: kappa 2633). His distinction between these two terms, though clearcut, is actually not borne out by the evidence; see LSJ s.v.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; rhetoric
