[An 'Ethiopian'] and [sc. also attested is] 'Ethiopians'.
Greek Original:
*ai)qiopeu\s kai\ *ai)qioph=as.
The primary headword is a nominative singular formed on the basis of the secondary one, an accusative plural which occurs at Homer, Iliad 1.423. Chantraine hints that this accusative plural could have been formed to fill the same metrical space as a dative plural *ai)qio/pessi.
Callimachus uses the genitive singular as an adjective (referring to the source of the Nile) in his Hymn to Delos (4.208 Pfeiffer).
cf. alphaiota 127, alphaiota 129.
