Headword: *daulo/n
Adler number: delta,98
Translated headword: shaggy
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that which is hairy.[1] Also [sc. attested is the phrase] "Daulian crow", [meaning] the nightingale. That is, the hairy one [daseia].[2]
Greek Original:
*daulo/n: to\ dasu/. kai\ *dauli/a korw/nh, h( a)hdw/n. toute/stin h( dasei=a.
[1] The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective, presumably quoted from somewhere. Same or similar glossing elsewhere.
[2] cf. (e.g.) Hesychius delta325, Zenobius 3,14. But the explanation is misconceived: the "Daulian crow" was Procne (pi 1475), from Daulis (in Phocis), who became a nightingale.
