Headword: Πυανεψιῶνος
Adler number: pi,3104
Translated headword: of Pyanepsion
Vetting Status: high
Name of a month.[1]
Also[2] [sc. attested is] Pyanopsia. Lycurgus in the [speech] Against Me[ne]saichmos [writes]: "and we ourselves call this festival Pyanopsia, but the other Greeks [call it] Panopsia, because they know that all [πάντας ] the crops are in view [ἐν ὄψει ]".[3] They say that the Pyanepsia [festival] is celebrated, for Apollo, on the seventh of Pyanepsion. And they say that one ought to speak of [the] Pyanepsia [festival] and the month Pyanepsion: for they boil beans [πύανα ... ἕψουσιν ] in them, and the fruited branch is carried.[4]
Greek Original:
Πυανεψιῶνος: ὄνομα μηνός. καὶ Πυανοψία: Λυκοῦργος ἐν τῇ κατὰ Μεσαίχμου. καὶ ἡμεῖς Πυανοψίαν ταύτην τὴν ἑορτὴν καλοῦμεν, οἱ δὲ ἄλλοι Ἕλληνες Πανοψίαν, ὅτι πάντας εἶδον τοὺς καρποὺς τῇ ὄψει. Πυανεψιῶνος δὲ ὅτι ἑβδόμῃ τὰ Πυανέψια Ἀπόλλωνι ἄγεσθαι φασί. δεῖν δὲ φασὶ λέγειν Πυανέψια καὶ τὸν μῆνα Πυανεψιῶνα: πύανα γὰρ ἕψουσιν ἐν αὐτοῖς, καὶ ἡ εἰρεσιώνη ἄγεται.
