Adler number: phi,734
Translated headword: think-shop, meditation-place
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] school, or monastery;[1] what Attic-speakers call a semneion.[2]
Greek Original:
*frontisth/rion: diatribh/, h)\ monasth/rion: o(/per *)attikoi\ semnei=on kalou=si.
The headword, a neuter noun, is best-known to classicists as the pompous comic title of Socrates' academy for paying pupils in Aristophanes, Clouds 94 and passim; cf. under delta 857. It is not attested again until, in later Greek, it is used neutrally of a philosophical school or monastic community.
[1] cf. Hesychius s.v.
[2] This entry seems to be recommending the word for use in Atticist writing. For semnei=on, see sigma 223, theta 228.
