Headword: *ski=ros
Adler number: sigma,624
Translated headword: sunshade
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] parasol. [The Skiron/Skira is] a particular festival celebrated for Athena, when they used to be concerned about sunshades at the peak of the summer heat. For skira [are] parasols.[1] But others say [sc. that it gets its name] not because of this, but from the [sc. statue of] Athena made of skira, which Theseus made when he returned after having killed the Minotaur. Skira is white earth, just like chalk.[2] And others still say that this name came into being from Skiros, the Eleusinian seer, but others from Skiros who unified Salamis.
