Adler number: theta,611
Translated headword: is being door-knocked
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Also [sc. attested is] 'doorknocker', [meaning] one who knocks on doors.[1]
Aristomenes, the Athenian, was nicknamed 'doormaker'.[2]
Greek Original:
Θυροκοπεῖται. καὶ Θυροκόπος, ὁ τὴν θύραν κόπτων. ὅτι Ἀριστομένης, ὁ Ἀθηναῖος, θυροποιὸς ἐπεκλήθη.
Notes:
The unglossed headword is present indicative middle/passive, third person singular, of θυροκοπέω . Apart from this entry, it is only attested at -- and may therefore very well be quoted here from -- Synesius, On insomnias 5.
