Headword: *poseidew=nos
Adler number: pi,2105

[Note] that in the [sc. Athenian] month Poseideon a 'measured-out day' used to be spoken of. This was a certain measure of water, flowing through a measured aperture in a day. It used to be measured in the month Poseideon, since of course in this [month] the greatest lawsuits about the greatest things used to be up for competition.[1]
[Note] that Poseidon and Athena were rivals over Attica. See in the entry 'more reverend'.[2]
