Headword: *fruktwri/a
Adler number: phi,758
Translated headword: beacon-signalling
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] nocturnal defence by means of towers.[1] Or a light. Or a fire. From pyrsos ["firebrand"] and [the verb] w)rei=n, which is to guard.
But a phryktoros [is] the man in charge of the beacon-signalling.
Also [sc. attested is the verb] fruktwrw=; with a dative.
Greek Original:
*fruktwri/a: h( dia\ tw=n purgw=n parafulakh\ nukterinh/. h)\ lampa/s. h)\ kau=sis. para\ to\n purso/n, kai\ to\ w)rei=n, o(/ e)sti fula/ttein. *fruktwro\s de\ o( th=s fruktwri/as e)pimelou/menos. kai\ *fruktwrw=: dotikh=|.
cf. phi 755, phi 757, phi 759.
[1] So the transmitted text in most mss; but purgw=n, "towers," should obviously be either purw=n, "fires," or pursw=n, "firebrands."
