Translated headword: Tithrasian Gorgons
Vetting Status: high
Tithrasos [is a] river, or a location in Libya, where the Gorgons resided.
Greek Original:
*gorgo/nes *tiqra/siai: *ti/qrasos potamo\s, h)\ to/pos *libu/hs, e)/nqa ai( *gorgo/nes die/tribon.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 477, where the headword phrase occurs, as TEIthrasian gorgons. The spelling is important, because Teithras was an Attic deme (and evidently one with prodigiously ugly women). Cf. tau 579 (where this fact is registered), tau 1124.
