Greek display:    

Headword: *(/usqhs
Adler number: upsilon,677
Translated headword: rained
Vetting Status: high
Also [sc. attested is] u(/sqhsan ["were rained upon"]. Herodotus [writes]: "for at that time Thebes was rained upon, never before having been rained upon; since in Egypt it is supposed not to rain."[2]
Greek Original:
*(/usqhs: broxh/. kai\ *(/usqhsan. *(hro/dotos: u(/sqhsan ga\r to/te *qh=bai, ou)dama\ pro/teron u(sqei=sai: e)pei\ e)n *ai)gu/ptw| dokei= mh\ u(/ein.
[1] For the gloss, Adler prints broxh/ from ms.F, while noting (a) that other mss. either have the truncated brox or omit the gloss altogether and (b) the suggested emendations in the ed. pr. (e)bra/xhs) and by Bernhardy (e)bra/xh). Certainty is made more difficult by the ambiguity of the headword itself, attested only here.
[2] See beta 436 (and upsilon 676). The verb is plural because in Greek 'Thebes' is plural.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; historiography; science and technology
