Headword: Θρώσκει
Adler number: theta,511
Translated headword: leaps
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] springs.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] θρωσμός ["springing/rising ground"], a place high [and] hilly, from which [it is possible] going down to run, which is to see; or to leap.[2]
Greek Original:
Θρώσκει: πηδᾷ. καὶ Θρωσμός, ὑψηλὸς τόπος βουνοειδής, ἀφ' οὗ ἐπικαταβαίνοντα θορεῖν, ὅ ἐστι θεάσασθαι: ἢ πηδῆσαι.
[1] Similar glossing in other lexica, with significant variations. The headword -- third person singular, present indicative active, of this verb -- seems to be quoted from Oppian, Halieutica; the present gloss is used in the scholia on its appearance there in 2.83, 2.585, and 3.569.
[2] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 20.3, where this term occurs in the dative; and cf. theta 408.
In Apollonius the Sophist, Homeric Lexicon, the gloss is βουνοειδὴς τόπος, ἀφ' οὗ ἀποβαίνοντα θορεῖν "a hill-like place, from which to run going away." Hesychius theta815 (Latte) has ἀφ̓ οὗ καταβαίνοντα θορεῖν ἔστι "from which it is possible to run going down." Photius, followed by the Suda, makes the participle ἐπικαταβαίνοντα θορεῖν "to run going down onto," and adds ὅ ἐστι θεάσασθαι "that is, to behold" (this phrase is obelized by Theodoridis). This wouldn't make sense as a gloss for θορεῖν "to run"; but the Synagoge has θεωρεῖν "to see," which is reasonably glossed with ὅ ἐστι θεάσασθαι . So the Suda seems to represent a confused tradition.
