Headword: *)eri/pnai
Adler number: epsilon,3004
Translated headword: cliffs, ravines
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] places which are opposite and extended beside [each other], through which the strong winds come out.[1]
So e)ri/pnh [means] lofty, large.[2]
Greek Original:
*)eri/pnai: oi( suraggw/deis kai\ paratetame/noi to/poi, di' w(=n ai( mega/lai pnoai\ e)kdu/nousin. *)eri/pnh ou)=n, u(yhlh/, mega/lh.
[1] Likewise in Etymologicum Magnum 374.29-31 and elsewhere. The headword is nominative plural of this feminine noun. If it is quoted from somewhere in that form, the source is perhaps Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 2.1247; note however that Hesychius epsilon5682 has the accusative plural, regarded by Latte as quoted from Euripides, Phoenician Women 1168. [The first glossing adjective is variously spelled in the manuscripts and other lexica; it could be surraggw/deis with double rho (cf. su/rragma, su/rracis), printed by Adler, or suriggw/deis ("tube-like").]
[2] Feminine nominative singular, with (according to Adler) the same glossing in the Ambrosian Lexicon. That of Hesychius epsilon5686, earlier still, is substantively similar.
