Headword: Aph' Hestias
Adler number: alpha,4590
Translated headword: from Hearth, from Hestia
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] from the house.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] 'to be initiated from hearth'. He who is 'initiated from hearth' was [fully] an Athenian.[2]
Greek Original:
Aph' Hestias: apo tês oikias. kai Aph' Hestias mueisthai. aph' Hestias muoumenos Athênaios ên.
Hestia was the goddess of the hearth, and her name also means 'hearth'.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Plato, Euthyphro 3A, where the headword phrase occurs.
[2] This part of the entry is (over-)abridged from Harpokration s.v., where Isaeus fr. 84 Sauppe is cited for the phrase, and 'fully' [pa/ntws] is part of the explanation.
For initiation (sc. in the Eleusinian Mysteries) see mu 1385, mu 1386, mu 1422, and cf. epsilon 2845.
