[Meaning] the mouth of the Nile.
Greek Original:
*mendh/sion ke/ras: to\ tou= *nei/lou sto/ma.
This phrase, for one of the eastern mouths of the River Nile, appears in Thucydides 1.110.4 (web address 1). Adler derives the entry from the scholia thereto, though the scholia read sto/mion in place of sto/ma. Herodotus 2.17.5 (web address 2) uses the phrase "Mendesian mouth". For the noun ke/ras in this sense (cf. e.g. the Golden Horn at Byzantium/Constantinople) see LSJ s.v., V.2 (web address 3).
