Headword: *)antipe/trou bh/matos
Adler number: alpha,2714
Translated headword: rock-like base
Vetting Status: high
["Rock-like"] because instead of stone it was brazen. Or a base [made of something] equivalent to rock, the one about the same as rock. But the threshold was brazen. Sophocles [writes]: "do not set your foot beyond that rock-like base".[1]
"Bronze" [is] the material itself; a "brazen" statue [is] the derivative adjective, like "gold" and "golden".[2]
