Adler number: kappa,2109
Translated headword: arching the neck
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning someone/something] prancing. Also [sc. attested is] "was arching the neck", [meaning he/she/it] was prancing.
Greek Original:
*korwnw=n: gauriw=n. kai\ *)ekorw/na, e)gauri/a.
The verb is properly korwnia/w; it appears next to gauria/w in e.g. Dio Chrysostom 78.33. Verb also in epsilon 540 (e)korwni/a), where it is likewise glossed with gauria/w; koroniw=n is also so glossed in Hesychius kappa3749.
Of the forms, the present participle koroniw=n (for the Suda's koronw=n) occurs in Greek Anthology 9.777.1-2 (Philip): "see how the horse, in art of bronze cunning, arches its neck". On e)korw/na = e)korwni/a see epsilon 540.
