Headword: Ὑποτροχίζεσθαι
Adler number: upsilon,618
Translated headword: to be broken on the wheel
Vetting Status: high
Not as we use the verb τροχίζεσθαι with the meaning of falling under a wheel and being injured, as the orators also used it, but they call τροχίζεσθαι to twist those being interrogated on the wheel, in order to confess to others what they know or about their own crimes.
Greek Original:
Ὑποτροχίζεσθαι: οὐχ ὡς ἡμεῖς ὑποπεσεῖν τροχῷ καὶ τρωθῆναι τροχίζεσθαι καλοῦμεν, οὕτω καὶ οἱ ῥήτορες αὐτῷ ἐχρήσαντο, ἀλλὰ τὸ στρεβλοῦσθαι ἐπὶ τοῦ τροχοῦ τοὺς ἐξεταζομένους, ἵνα κατείπωσιν ἃ συνίσασιν ἄλλοις ἢ περὶ ὧν αὐτοὶ ἠδίκησαν, τροχίζεσθαι λέγουσιν.
cf. Phrynichus, Praeparatio sophistica fr. 363 Borries (giving this definition of the aorist passive infinitive ὑποτροχισθῆναι ).
