Headword: Ἕλικας
Adler number: epsilon,848
Translated headword: spirals, twists, helices
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] bracelets that go around the wrists, or earrings.
Greek Original:
Ἕλικας: τὰ περὶ τοὺς καρποὺς ψέλια, ἢ ἐνώτια.
The headword is accusative plural of LSJ's ἕλιξ (B).
The entry is derived ultimately from the scholia to Homer, Iliad 18.401 -- where this word appears (web address 1) -- via Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (66.17-22 Bekker, cf. 55.14), which has several additional explanations of the word as a term for a piece of jewelry. Hesychius has similar entries from the same source (epsilon2066, epsilon2069, epsilon2071), and Adler also cites the unedited Ambrosian Lexicon (544).
cf. generally epsilon 847, epsilon 854, epsilon 856.
