From denoting the ";vehement neighing"; of horses, this verb came to be used of the ";haughtiness"; or ";insolence"; of men (cf. ";prancing proconsuls";), as in Act. 4:25 from Psa. 2:1. In M. Anton, iv. 48 μετὰ δεινοῦ φρυάγματος, the reference is to the ";revolting insolence"; with which tyrants have exercised their power of life and death.
