Headword: *no/tos
Adler number: nu,509
Translated headword: Notos, south-west wind
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the wind [sc. of that name].[1] Also [sc. attested is] *noto/qen ["south-westerly"], [meaning] from [the] south-west.[2]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] *no/ton kau/swna ["south-western heat"].[3]
The etymology of *no/tos [is] from the [verb] o)nw=, [future] o)no/sw, the one [which means] I blame and I harm; or from the [noun] noti/s, which is moisture. But more cleverly he understood who said that it is Attic for no/sos ["disease"], as by comparison with *borra=s ["Boreas, north wind"] which is suitable for health.[4]

[1] cf. ps.-Herodian 93 and (according to Adler) Ambrosian Lexicon 330.
[2] *no/toqen occurs in e.g. Plato's will, as quoted by Diogenes Laertius (3.41-42, twice); used there as a topographical marker, of one piece of land bordering another on that side. Also attested in astronomical texts. Adler indicates the rest of this entry as interpolation.
[3] The source of this phrase (in the accusative case) is unknown.
[4] cf. Etymologicum Magnum 607.39. The verb cited as o)nw= is o)/nomai "I find fault." On Boreas the north wind, see beta 390. Needless to say, no/tos is not Attic for no/sos (on which see nu 495).
