Headword: Ôlenai
Adler number: omega,65
Translated headword: forearms
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Feminine. [Meaning] the forearms of the hands.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the adjective] 'white-forearmed'.[2]
"He came carried on unblemished forearms."[3]
But [note also] w)lh/n, [genitive] w)lh=nos, masculine; toi=s w)le/si, [dative] plural.[4]
Greek Original:
Ôlenai: thêlukôs. hoi pêcheis tôn cheirôn. kai Leukôlenai. epochoumenos epestê akêratois ôlenais. Ôlên de, ôlênos, arsenikon: tois ôlesi, plêthuntikon.
Notes:
[1] It is possible that xeirw=n here refers to the entire arm, or that the 'forearms of the hands' are the fingers. In any event, the gloss elucidates one word for forearm, w)le/nh, with another, ph=xus. See LSJ entry at web address 1.
[2] An Homeric epithet (e.g. of Hera in Iliad 1.55): see LSJ s.v. (web address 2). Here feminine nominative plural, not independently attested.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable.
[4] cf. omega 70, where the stem vowel is, as commonly attested, epsilon rather than eta.
