Adjective edit

θᾰρρᾰλέος (tharrhaléosm (feminine θᾰρρᾰλέᾱ, neuter θᾰρρᾰλέον); first/second declension

  1. daring, courageous
    • 384 BCE – 322 BCE, Aristotle, Rhetoric 2.5.16:
      φανερὸν ἐκ τούτων καὶ τὸ θαρρεῖν τί ἐστι, καὶ περὶ ποῖα θαρραλέοι εἰσὶ καὶ πῶς διακείμενοι θαρραλέοι εἰσίν: τό τε γὰρ θάρσος τὸ ἐναντίον τῷ φόβῳ, καὶ τὸ θαρραλέον τῷ φοβερῷ
      phaneròn ek toútōn kaì tò tharrheîn tí esti, kaì perì poîa tharrhaléoi eisì kaì pôs diakeímenoi tharrhaléoi eisín: tó te gàr thársos tò enantíon tôi phóbōi, kaì tò tharrhaléon tôi phoberôi
      so, from these, it is also clear what courage is, and about which things they are courageous, and what the psychology of the courageous is; for courage is opposite of fear and that which causes courage is opposite of that which causes fear
  2. (negative) overbold, audacious
