Headword: Anantes
Adler number: alpha,1978
Translated headword: steep
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning something] leading-upwards.[1]
Anantes ["steep"] and prosantes ["uphill"][2] are the same thing. And if something [is] steep, this thing [is] also uphill, not yet turning back again. For what is uphill [is] precipitous and not yielding, not receptive of one who wants to go up. The opposite of steep and uphill [is] katantes ["downhill"]. And we call sweet and joyful things easy and simple, but painful things [we call] steep and arduous and forbidding.[3]
Also [sc. attested is the masculine] a)na/nths, [meaning] the road difficult to walk. And it declines into -ous [in the genitive].
