[Things which are] false and unreliable.[1] "For from this [source] there arise for him windy and monstrous things, instead[2] of the true understanding, like some kind of images and shadows. So they practice falsities in place of the understanding of truths ..."
Greek Original:
Ὑπηνέμια: τὰ ψευδῆ καὶ ἀβέβαια. γίνεται γὰρ αὐτῷ ἐντεῦθεν τὰ ὑπηνέμια καὶ τερατώδη, ἀντὶ τῆς ἀληθοῦς ἐπιστήμης, οἷον εἴδωλα ἄττα καὶ σκιαί. πράττουσι γοῦν πρὸ τῆς τῶν ἀληθῶν ἐπιστήμης τὰ ψεύδη.
[1] The headword is neuter nominative (and accusative) plural of ὑπηνέμιος , presumably extracted from the quotation given (Julian [the emperor], Orations 7.206c). See also epsilon 2185; more about this headword at upsilon 424, upsilon 425, upsilon 426.
[2] In the text of Julian, ταυτὶ instead of ἀντὶ : "these windy and monstrous images and shadows of the true understanding."
