Adler number: epsilon,257
Translated headword: to floor
Vetting Status: high
['To floor'] and 'to deck'. [sc. Writers] used each of them. So 'to floor' [means] for example putting together from certain timbers which have simply been put together for a certain place, whereas 'to deck' could be thought of as more commonly said -- for many ordinary people call decks the roofs composed from long timbers under other roofs.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] "on the hedolia" in Herodotus [meaning] on the supports of a ship.[2]
Sophokles [writes]: "the flames were already blazing around the decks at your ships' sterns."[3]
