Headword: Ὑπέροπτα
Adler number: upsilon,332
Translated headword: haughty
Vetting Status: high
“But if anyone walks haughty in hands [= deeds] or word, with no fear of justice or even reverence for the gods, may an evil doom seize him for his ill-starred pride”. That is, because of profane insolence and pride may such a man be in an evil fate; [someone] who will not abstain from the unholy or who will possess [some] of the untouchables, that is the things one should not own.[1]
Greek Original:
Ὑπέροπτα: εἰ δέ τις ὑπέροπτα χερσὶν ἢ λόγῳ πορεύεται, δίκης ἀφόβητος, οὐδὲ δαιμόνων ἕδη σέβων, κακή νιν ἕλοιτο μοῖρα, δυσπότμου χάριν χλιδῆς. τουτέστιν ἕνεκα τῆς ἀνοσίου τρυφῆς καὶ ὑπερηφανίας ὁ τοιοῦτος ἐν κακῇ εἴη μοίρᾳ, ὃς μὴ ἀφέξεται τῶν ἀσέπτων ἢ ἕξεται τῶν ἀθίκτων, τουτέστιν ὧν οὐ χρὴ ἔχεσθαι.
The headword, evidently extracted from the quotation given, is a neuter plural adjective functioning as an adverb.
