Headword: *ou)rano/qi pro/
Adler number: omicron,941
Translated headword: before the front of heaven
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] in the place below the clouds.[1]
Greek Original:
*ou)rano/qi pro/: e)n tw=| u(po\ ta\ ne/fh to/pw|.
The headword phrase appears at, and is evidently extracted from, Homer, Iliad 3.3 (web address 1): the Trojans rally for battle against the Achaeans with a clamor like cranes before the front of heaven.
The principal element in it is derived from ou)rano/s (heaven; see generally LSJ s.v.); the form ou)rano/qi is adverbial of place (Smyth ยง342, web address 2).
[1] The gloss follows a scholion (of Aristonicus) to the aforementioned passage.
