Headword: *decimh/lwn
Adler number: delta,229
Translated headword: sheep-receiving, sacrifice-rich
Vetting Status: high
[Referring to] gods.[1] [So called] from their accepting sheep being sacrificed.
"Of altars" [sc. would be] more proper.[2]
Greek Original:
*decimh/lwn: qew=n. a)po\ tou= de/xesqai ta\ quo/mena mh=la. bwmw=n kuriw/teron.
Same entry (minus the addendum) in Photius, though there 'gods' is regarded as part of the headword. The headword adjective occurs several times in Euripides, and the scholia to its neuter plural in Phoenician Women 632 (deci/mhl' a)ga/lmata) echo the Suda's de/xesqai ta\ quo/mena.
[1] Genitive plural(s), evidently quoted from somewhere but not independently attested.
[2] Marginal addendum in some manuscripts only, Adler reports.
