Greek display:    

Headword: *kath/lusis
Adler number: kappa,1051
Translated headword: descent, return
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a prostitute.
Greek Original:
*kath/lusis: h( po/rnh.
The transmitted gloss makes no obvious sense and surely needs emendation. Kuehn's change (noted by Adler) from po/rnh to porei/a ('journey') is very plausible. Compare alpha 1203, phi 807, and esp. eta 274.
For this headword see also kappa 1050.
Keywords: definition; gender and sexuality; geography; women
