Headword: *pre/sba
Adler number: pi,2245
Translated headword: august, honored
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] most/very much held in honor.[1]
Greek Original:
*pre/sba: e)ntimota/th.
Notes:
For the headword pre/sba see LSJ s.v.: "Ep[ic] fem[inine] of pre/sbus, august, honoured (never aged); in Il[iad] mostly of Hera." Indeed, in the source of the present entry (see next note), Homer, Iliad 14.194 (web address 1), Aphrodite addresses Hera as pre/sba qea/: honored goddess. For this expression, Cunliffe suggests queen of heaven (p. 341).
[1] The gloss, which follows the scholia to the aforementioned passage, is the superlative degree, feminine nominative singular, of the two-ending adjective e)/ntimos, -on (in honor); see generally LSJ s.v.
