Headword: *numfei=os oi)=kos
Adler number: nu,593
Translated headword: bridal house
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning that] in which the brides [or: nymphs] are.[1] But [sc. with the adjective differently spelled] nu/mfios ko/smos ["bridal adornment, adornment of a bride"] [is used] possessively, like Tyrian ["of Tyre"], Phrygian ["of Phrygia"], Lydian ["of Lydia"].[2]
"On the day when the bridal chamber was lit with a lamp, then you obtained a pyre, not marriage."[3]

[1] For the headword phrase, Adler compares Ambrosian Lexicon 35, as well as ps.-Zonaras nu1408 and Philoponus (de vocabulis nu4).
[2] Similarly in the Synagoge, Photius (nu289 Theodoridis), and Lexica Segueriana 310.10.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.188.7-8 (Antonius Thallus). Line 7 should begin h)/mati d'w(=|. The penultimate word is qala/mwn; Adler regards the erroneous nala/mwn in the Suda as influenced by nama/twn in nu 594. Verses 5-6 of this epigram are quoted at epsilon 2994, mu 1258, and phi 800.
