Headword: Ὕβρισεν οὐχ πατάξας
Adler number: upsilon,18
Translated headword: the insulter was not he who struck but he who rebuked and reproached
Vetting Status: high
And a construction: "[gripped?] by indignation and facing insult, because at first he had not been trusted as regards the army".[1]
Aristophanes [writes]: "now is this not an insult, and utter insolence" -- meaning arrogance -- "that I myself, Dionysus son of Winejug, must walk and labour; but him I let ride, so that he might not be afflicted".[2]
Greek Original:
Ὕβρισεν οὐχ ὁ πατάξας, ἀλλ' ὁ ἐπιπλήξας καὶ ὀνειδίσας. καὶ σύνταξις: ὑπὸ ἀγανακτήσεως καὶ πρὸς ὕβρεως τιθέμενος, ὅτι μὴ τὰ πρῶτα ἐπεπίστευτο τὴν στρατιάν. Ἀριστοφάνης: εἶτ' οὐχ ὕβρις ταῦτ' ἐστί, καὶ πολλὴ τρυφή [ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀλαζονεία], ὅτ' ἐγὼ μὲν Διόνυσος, υἱὸς Σταμνίου, αὐτὸς βαδίζω καὶ πονῶ: τοῦτον δ' ὀχῶ, ἵνα μὴ ταλαιπωροῖτο.
The unglossed quotation which is the present headword phrase is unidentifiable.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, according to Adler, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) again unidentifiable -- though A. Favuzzi argues that the individual concerned is L. Antonius Saturninus: see under alpha 2762.
