Headword: *tetame/non fw=s eu)qu\s oi(=on ki/ona
Adler number: tau,365
Translated headword: a light stretched straight like a pillar
Vetting Status: high
He is speaking of the heavenly [light]: for the continuous [sunexe/s means] the foundation[?],[1] the undergirding[2] of the cosmos. And then going on to say "at the extremities," the axle is imagined. [He writes] eu)qu/ ["straight"] in place of o)rqo/n ["upright"]. But some [say that he means] the axle of the cosmos; others [say that he means] a kind of cylinder of ethereal fire which is around the axle.

= Photius tau192 Theodoridis. From commentary on a passage from the Myth of Er in Plato, Republic 10.616B, where the headword phrase occurs -- though with neuter eu)qu/, as later in the entry, rather than the lexicographers' ungrammatical eu)qu/s (web address 1). (Porson emended Photius' text, and Aemilius Portus the Suda's, accordingly.)
[1] Adler notes that 'Chr. Schneider' [= K.E.C. Schneider, 1786-1856] emended to sune/xon th\n perifora/n, comparing the Platonic text (616C).
[2] Adler reports that ms G has the earlier spelling u(po/zwma (as in Plato, though in the plural -- cf. generally upsilon 493), also advocated by Naber for Photius; Theodoridis approves.
