Headword: *to/sibis
Adler number: tau,800
Translated headword: Tosibis
Vetting Status: high
A deity [of that name].
Greek Original:
*to/sibis: qeo/s.
Attested as such only here and, according to Adler (who reports the correction 'Tosibos' in one manuscript), in a comparable entry in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The name sounds Egyptian.
Eusebius and Theodoret mention a Tosobis (sic) who was leader of the Solymeis, between Lycia and Pamphylia; however, they are both quoting Plutarch, Moralia 421D, where the name is Trosobios, and thus irrelevant here.
