Headword: *foini/kion e)/rnos
Adler number: phi,792
Translated headword: palm shoot
Vetting Status: high
['palm shoot',] and '[sc. purple] color'. Also 'Phoenician person'.
Greek Original:
*foini/kion e)/rnos, kai\ xrw=ma. kai\ *foini/kios a)/nqrwpos.
Probably derived ultimately from Apollonius Sophistes, Homeric Lexicon 164 s.v. foi=nic, which deals with various connotations of the term, including 'date-palm', 'purple' and 'Phoenician'. Occasioned by the phrase foi/nikos ne/on e)/rnos ("young shoot of palm") in Homer, Odyssey 6.163, which the headword phrase seems to replicate erroneously with the adjectival derivative of foi=nic; cf. Hesychius phi701, Etymologicum Gudianum 556 s.v. foi/nikos.
