Headword: *poia/nteion pedi/on
Adler number: pi,3072
Translated headword: Poianteian plain, Poiantian son?
Vetting Status: high
[no gloss]
Greek Original:
*poia/nteion pedi/on.
Otherwise unattested as a geographical term. [NF: if it is one, perhaps an error derived from Oiantheia/Euantheia, the modern Tolofon, Greece.] However, Adler reports that ms. G reads not pedi/on but paidi/on, 'child', so this is very likely one of lexicography's several glosses on Homer, Odyssey 3.190: the son of Poias, i.e. Philoktetes (phi 383).
Keywords: epic; geography; mythology
