Headword: *)aetidei=s
Adler number: alpha,570
Translated headword: eaglets
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the offspring of eagles.[1]
Aelian [sc. uses the word].[2]
Also [attested is] pelargidei=s ["storklets"], [meaning] the offspring of storks.[3]
Greek Original:
*)aetidei=s: oi( a)etou= pai=des. *ai)liano/s. kai\ pelargidei=s, pelargw=n pai=des.
[1] Same material, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
[2] Aelian fr. 131 Domingo-Forasté, 128 Hercher (this word only).
[3] Aelian fr. 173 Domingo-Forasté, 170 Hercher (again, single word). Adler's note cites the Aelian fragment only tentatively, '(?)170', and there has to be an outside chance -- despite pi 930, which may be no more than a mechanical cross-reference -- that "storklets" is quoted from somewhere else. The three extant possibilities are: Aristophanes, Birds 1356 (accusative plural); Plutarch, Moralia 992B (dative plural); and Procopius, On the Wars of Justinian 3.4.33 (accusative plural).
Keywords: comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; zoology
