Headword: *gotqoi/
Adler number: gamma,406
Translated headword: Goths
Vetting Status: high
Look for the merging [of two syllables into one].
Greek Original:
*gotqoi/. zh/tei th\n sunaloifh/n.
Adler prints this nominative plural headword without a gloss, while noting that one manuscript (F) has one, 'name of a people'; comparably, she reports, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. For the Goths see generally OCD(4) p.623.
As to the phrase appended (lacking in two of the manuscripts): classic synal(o)iphe (sigma 1434) is illustrated by the merging of two adjacent vowels or diphthongs, but in this instance, evidently, the point relates to the forms *Gotqoi/ and, much rarer, *Go/qoi.
