Headword: *dibhth/sia
Adler number: delta,852
Translated headword: divetesia
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] divikia.
Greek Original:
*dibhth/sia: dibi/kia.
According to the lexicon of E.A. Sophocles, the headword is the plural of dibhth/sion, also written as dibiti/sion or even diaith/sion, a non-Greek (perhaps Persian) word apparently designating a kind of garment. It appears in several Byzantine writers, notably Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus.
The gloss dibi/kia is attested only here and (as an unglossed headword) in ps.-Zonaras.
