Adler number: sigma,1409
Translated headword: coming-together, conjunction
Vetting Status: high

[symphora] also [sc. means] being carried together [epiphora] at the same time. Pisides [says]: "out of the immense coming-together of the snowdrifts."[1] [He is speaking] about snow.
Greek Original:

Notes:
For this headword in its (common) applied meaning of fortune -- good or bad -- see already sigma 1407 and sigma 1408. The present entry (which, Adler reports, is part of sigma 1408 in four of the mss) presents an instance of it in a literal, etymological sense.
