Headword: Γοτθοί
Adler number: gamma,406
Translated headword: Goths
Vetting Status: high
Look for the merging [of two syllables into one].
Greek Original:
Γοτθοί. ζήτει τὴν συναλοιφήν.
Adler prints this nominative plural headword without a gloss, while noting that one manuscript (F) has one, 'name of a people'; comparably, she reports, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. For the Goths see generally OCD(4) p.623.
As to the phrase appended (lacking in two of the manuscripts): classic synal(o)iphe (sigma 1434) is illustrated by the merging of two adjacent vowels or diphthongs, but in this instance, evidently, the point relates to the forms Γοτθοί and, much rarer, Γόθοι .
