Headword: Ὑβρίζειν
Adler number: upsilon,11
Translated headword: to do violence, to act insolently
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In reference to behaving shamefully.[1] "[He] supposed that they, wicked as they were, [sc. were disposed] to do violence and to be idle."[2]
"But he did not live at random, as least as far as I can judge, nor indeed like the many bent over the table and eager to be satiated and to act insolently, but striving to know something more under the guidance of the god."[3]
Greek Original:
Ὑβρίζειν: ἐπὶ τοῦ αἰσχρῶς διαιτᾶσθαι. ὑπέλαβε πονηροὺς ὄντας ὑβρίζειν καὶ ῥᾳστωνεύεσθαι. ὁ δὲ οὐ μάτην ἔζη ὥς γε ἐμὲ κρίνειν, οὐδὲ μὴν ὡς οἱ πολλοὶ ἐς τραπέζας κεκυφέναι καὶ ἐμπίπλασθαι καὶ ὑβρίζειν σπεύδων, ἀλλὰ πλέον τι εἰδέναι μαστεύων ὑφ' ἡγεμόνι θεῷ.
Notes:
The headword, probably extracted from the first quotation given, is present infinitive of ὑβρίζω (upsilon 13). For this verb see also upsilon 12, upsilon 17, upsilon 18, and cf. more generally upsilon 14, upsilon 15, upsilon 16, upsilon 19, upsilon 20, upsilon 21.
