Headword: Θέρος
Adler number: theta,255
Translated headword: summer
Vetting Status: high
The [sc. Attic] orators used not to call ['summer'] the season, like 'winter and spring and summer', but they named thus the harvested fruits of the seeds.
Greek Original:
Θέρος: οὐ τὸν καιρὸν οἱ ῥήτορες ἐκάλουν, οἷον χειμῶνα καὶ ἔαρ καὶ θέρος, ἀλλὰ τοὺς συγκομιζομένους καρποὺς τῶν σπερμάτων οὕτω προσηγόρευσαν.
For this headword see already theta 255. The present material is paralleled, more briefly, in Etymologicum Magnum 446.55-56 (Kallierges).
For an example of the point made here see Demosthenes 53.21 (web address 1), and generally LSJ s.v. θέρος II.
