Headword: Κλημακτήρων
Adler number: kappa,1776
Translated headword: rungs
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] difficulties.[1] "For without incisions and rungs it was not possible to climb up [the rock]."[2]
Greek Original:
Κλημακτήρων: δυσχερειῶν. χωρὶς γὰρ ἐγκοπῶν καὶ κλημακτήρων οὐχ οἷόν τ' ἦν ἐπιβαίνειν.
Notes:
[1] Headword and glossing word are in fact genitive plurals, the former presumably extracted from the quotation given. The Suda is guessing at the sense of κλημακτήρ , a misspelling (or variant) of κλιμακτήρ .
[2] Unidentifiable quotation, already at epsilon 113.
