Headword: *dusa/lwton
Adler number: delta,1589
Translated headword: hard to capture
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] hard to take hold of.
Greek Original:
*dusa/lwton: du/slhpton.
The headword is either neuter nominative/accusative singular or masculine accusative singular of this adjective, and the entry = Synagoge delta386 (and Photius, Lexicon delta793). Bachmann's edition of the Synagoge (202.15) prints dusa/lwton: du/slhpton, dusno/hton, kakono/hton ("hard to take hold of, hard to understand, badly understandable"), but Cunningham omits the final two words (rendering the entry equivalent to the Suda's) without comment in his apparatus. Perhaps originally from scholia to (?)Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 166, but cf. also the scholia to Sophocles, Oedipus at Colonus 1723 (masculine nominative singular); and see generally LSJ s.v.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; tragedy
