A musical note/string,[1] producing a deep/heavy sound.[2]
"When he slipped into the ultimate sickness, and an inevitable end, he saw something visible to his excellence; and he stuck his sword in his innards".[3]
Greek Original:
Ὑπάτη: χορδὴ μουσική, βαρὺν φθόγγον ἀποτελοῦσα. νοῦσον ὅτ' ἐς ὑπάτην ὠλίσθανε, τέρμα τ' ἄφυκτον, εἶδεν ἀριστείην ἐμφανὲς εἰς ἰδίην: πῆξε δ' ὑπὸ σπλάγχνοισιν ἑὸν ἔγχος.
Notes:
[1] cf. ps.-Herodian 140, ps.-Zonaras 1770.
[2] The headword itself and the gloss given to it here sound incompatible but are not. See LSJ s.v. ('the highest of the three strings ... but the lowest in pitch') and esp. M.L. West, Ancient Greek Music (Oxford 1992) 64, with 219-220.
[3] An approximation of Greek Anthology 7.233.3-5.
