Greek Original:
Ὑψηχής: ὁ ὑψαύχην. καί, ὑψηχέες ἵπποι.
The phrase quoted comes from Homer, Iliad 5.772 (web address 1). However, despite the scholia there (and other lexica), the actual sense and import of the headword adjective ὑψηχής is unclear: see LSJ s.v.
For the glossing word ὑψαύχην applied to a horse, cf. Plato, Phaedrus 253D.
cf. under upsilon 744.
