Headword: *kekasme/non
Adler number: kappa,1233
Translated headword: adorned
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] ornamented.
Greek Original:
*kekasme/non: kekosmhme/non.
The perfect middle-passive of the poetic verb kai/numi is glossed with the prose verb kosme/w. The verb originally meant "to excel"; the sense "to adorn, to furnish" is attested from Pindar (LSJ s.v.), but can be read into Homeric instances of the participle like Odyssey 4.725: "excelling in all virtues among the Danaans"/"adorned by all virtues among the Danaans". The present entry follows a scholion on this verse and is also the same as or similar to entries in other lexica and scholia; see the references at Photius kappa525 Theodoridis.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; poetry
