Headword: Εὐπῖδαξ χῶρος
Adler number: pi,1555
Translated headword: fountain
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] spring. Or drop [sc. of water].[1]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] εὐπῖδαξ χῶρος ["well-fountained place"], [meaning] one which has a fine spring.[2]
"And a purple bunch of grapes, wine-fountained, thick with berries [...]". In the Epigrams.[3]
Greek Original:
Πίδαξ: πηγή. ἢ σταγών. καὶ Εὐπῖδαξ χῶρος, ὁ καλὴν πηγὴν ἔχων. πορφυρίαν τε βότρυν, μεθυπίδακα, πυκνορρᾶγα. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι.
Notes:
The SOL headword, wrongly, is the phrase given later in the entry. The true headword is, simply, πίδαξ .
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius pi871 Theodoridis), and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 16.825, where the genitive singular πίδακος occurs. See also pi 1553.
[2] cf. epsilon 3651.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.22.3 (Zonas), a dedication to Priapus by an unnamed custodian of an orchard; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 380-381; and vol. II, 413-414) and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 380, alpha 2663, alpha 4049, pi 2275, and rho 318. Gow and Page suggest (vol. I, 380) that the puzzling Suda entry pi 1554 (πιδακίων ) relates to μεθυπίδακα , wine-fountained, in this passage; cf. Trapp, s.v. πιδάκιον .
