Cenʹtaur (2 syl.)

.

A huntsman. The Thessalian centaurs were half-horses, half-men. They were invited to a marriage feast, and, being intoxicated, behaved with great rudeness to the women. The Lapʹithæ took the women’s part, fell on the centaurs, and drove them out of the country.

Feasts that Thessalian centaurs never knew.”
