Headword: *)aqh/nhsin
Adler number: alpha,733
Translated headword: at Athens
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] in Athens.[1] For Athene [is] a city of Laconia.[2]
Greek Original:
*)aqh/nhsin: e)n tai=s *)aqh/nais. *)aqh/nh ga\r po/lis th=s *lakwnikh=s.
[1] = Hesychius. The headword, a commonplace single-word locative, is evidently quoted from somewhere.
[2] The point of the supplementary/explanatory sentence is to distinguish the plural AthenAI (*)aqh=nai) from the singular AthenE (*)aqh/nh). (Note, however, that Stephanus of Byzantium listed both of them - and six others - as plural.)
