Greek display:    

Headword: *)amfi/krhmnos
Adler number: alpha,1734
Translated headword: with cliffs all around
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] with cliffs all round[1] or very short.
Greek Original:
*)amfi/krhmnos: peri/krhmnos h)\ braxuta/th.
Likewise in Photius and other lexica. The headword, as glossed, is feminine nominative singular of this two-termination adjective. It is probably quoted from somewhere in that form, or at least from a content where it is feminine. (The neuter a)mfi/krhmnon in Euripides, Bacchae 1051, which presumably generated Hesychius alpha4032, is unconnected.)
[1] For the glossing of amphi with peri cf. alpha 1692, alpha 1699, alpha 1717.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; tragedy
