Headword: *(ali/pedon
Adler number: alpha,1240
Translated headword: halipedon
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] level plain next to the sea.[1]
Some people call Piraeus this.[2] It is also an accessible place[3] which once was sea and afterwards became a plain. Hence one must aspirate the first [sc. syllable], for it is as much as to say a plain of salt [a(lo/s]. And some call the coastal plain [of Attica] this. Others [say] that it got its name from the ability for horses to roll [a)lindei=sqai] in it, that is wallow.
See above, under Alex.[4]
