Name of a month among Macedonians, [namely] November,[1] [sc. Also an adjective denoting] the young and the illustrious.[2] The vocative [is] w)= di=e.[3] It also indicates the name of a place.[4]
Greek Original:
*di=os: o)/noma mhno\s para\ *makedo/sin, o( *noe/mbrios, o( ne/os de\ kai\ o( e)/ndocos. h( klhtikh\ w)= di=e. shmai/nei de\ kai\ o)/noma to/pou.
[1] *di=os was indeed a month of the Macedonian calendar, corresponding to Attic Pyanepsion (October-November).
[2] cf. e.g. Etymologicum Magnum 278.15-18 for the gloss e)/ndocos [NB: some Suda mss do not begin the present gloss until o( e)/ndocos]; and see already delta 1167.
[3] As in e.g. Homer, Iliad 8.185; and see under alpha 1421 = sigma 569.
[4] No Dios is attested as a toponym (except as the first element of Dios Hieron); the lexicographer must mean one of the several places called Dion/Dium, the best-known of them in Pieria (N Greece).
