Headword: *)aorth/n
Adler number: alpha,2850
Translated headword: knapsack
Vetting Status: high
Many now say a)berth/ [sc. as opposed to the headword a)orth/]. Both the article and the word [are] Macedonian.[1]
Notice that a)orth/ [is] also a vein.[2]
Greek Original:
*)aorth/n: le/gousin oi( polloi\ nu=n a)berth/n. *makedoniko\n de\ kai\ to\ skeu=os kai\ to\ o)/noma. zh/tei o(/ti kai\ fle\y a)orth/.
[1] See generally LSJ s.v., II, citing instances in comedy. If a)berth/ is genuinely Macedonian, it seems to show b representing an original digamma (cf. alpha 638), as well as a different vowel grade.
[2] In ms M only. Whether it is calling this a generic term for "veins" (arteries) or making a specific point about the aorta is unclear.
