Headword: Θαυμάζω
Adler number: theta,68
Translated headword: I marvel
Vetting Status: high
When we combine [it] with a genitive, it signifies 'I disdain', but with an accusative 'I approve.'[1]
But [sc. this verb] also signifies they were gazing [in wonder]. "Standing, they were marveling".[2]
"I myself marvel, how after so many things had been said, you forgot those things, which were many and beautiful -- for I would not say of you 'you did not perceive [them]', unless I had frequently forgotten myself earlier [...]"[3]
Greek Original:
Θαυμάζω: ὅτε πρὸς γενικὴν συντάσσομεν, τὸ καταγινώσκω σημαίνει, πρὸς δὲ αἰτιατικὴν τὸ ἐπαινῶ. σημαίνει δὲ καὶ τὸ ἐθεῶντο. ἱστάμενοι θαύμαζον. θαυμάζω δὲ ἔγωγε, πῶς τοσούτων εἰρημένων, ἐκείνων μὲν ὄντων πολλῶν καὶ καλῶν ἐπελάθου: τὸ γὰρ οὐκ ἐνόησας, οὔ ποτ' ἂν εἴποιμι περὶ σοῦ, πλὴν εἰ μὴ πρότερον ἐμαυτὸν πολλάκις ἀγνοήσαιμι.

[2] Apparently (as Adler notes) Homer, Iliad 18.496 (web address 1), with comments derived from the scholia. In Homer, however, the phrase occurs with the feminine form of the participle that means 'standing' (ἱστάμεναι ), rather than the masculine, as here (ἱστάμενοι ).
[3] Quotation unidentifiable.
