Headword: Ὑπέρφρων
Adler number: upsilon,389
Translated headword: arrogant
Vetting Status: high
"Polemo[n] the sophist[1] was so arrogant that he discoursed with cities from the position of a superior, with rulers from that of no inferior, and with gods on a basis of equality." His deeds -- I mean of course those of the arrogant Polemo[n] -- are recounted more clearly in the Lives of the Sophists.[2]
Greek Original:
Ὑπέρφρων: ὑπέρφρων δὴ οὕτως ὁ Πολέμων ὁ σοφιστής, ὡς πόλεσι μὲν ἀπὸ τοῦ προὔχοντος, δυνάσταις δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ μὴ ὑφειμένου, θεοῖς δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἴσου διαλέγεσθαι. λέγεται δὲ καὶ τὰ αὐτῷ πεπραγμένα, φημὶ δὴ Πολέμωνι τῷ ὑπέρφρονι, ἐν τοῖς βίοις τῶν σοφιστῶν τρανότερον.
[1] pi 1889.
[2] Philostratus, Lives of the Sophists 1.25 (530-544), from which this quotation comes (1.25.4).
