Headword: *paianismo/s
Adler number: pi,842
Translated headword: paean-singing
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a song for [the occasion of] release from troubles.
Greek Original:
*paianismo/s: w)|dh\ e)pi\ a)pallagh=| kakw=n.
Noun -- variously paianismo/s, as here, and paiwnismo/s -- derived from the verb paiani/zw; see also epsilon 2745, and cf. generally pi 836, pi 837, pi 838, pi 841.
Its nominative singular here could simply be generic, or perhaps extracted from Thucydides 7.44.6: paean-singing by the Athenians' opponents and Dorian allies at Syracuse in 413 BCE causes confusion. See web address 1.
