Adler number: kappa,1602
Translated headword: strength, vigour
Vetting Status: high
[ki=kus] in the masculine means one who is weak.[1] But ki=kus in the feminine [means] strength/vigour.[2]
Greek Original:
*ki=kus: a)rseniko\n o( a)sqenh/s. *ki=kus de\ qhluko\n h( i)sxu/s.
The epic/poetic headword is the nominative singular form of a third declension feminine noun: see LSJ s.v., which does not mention a masculine usage.
[1] This can hardly be right; Adler notes (but does not adopt) Aemilius Portus' emendation of a)sqenh/s to eu)sqenh/s "strong".
[2] cf. Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (99.27) and Etymologicum Magnum 513.34.
