"And a cork-oak unsunk in water always, making the sign of hidden nets."[1]
Greek Original:
*fe/llos. a)ba/ptisto/n te kaq' u(/dwr fello/n, a)ei\ krufi/wn sh=ma laxo/nta bo/lwn.
The headword -- which appears in the accusative case in the quotation given -- is unglossed here, but (with different accentuation) has a gloss in Hesychius ("bark of trees, or light wood"). According to LSJ, fello/s is Quercus suber, or something made of cork, such as floats on a fishing-net.
[1] Greek Anthology 6.192.5-6 (Archias). [Adler inserts the comma after fello/n, i.e. taking the "always" with what follows.]
