Headword: Antanaklasin
Adler number: alpha,2609
Translated headword: re-reflection, re-reverberation
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] being derived from something by reflection/reverberation. This comes from sound, whenever there is an echo, or at the light of the sun, whenever it strikes something smooth or very bright water.
Greek Original:
Antanaklasin: kata anaklasin apo tinos metagomenê. ginetai de touto apo phônês, hotan antêchêi, kai epi phôtos hêliakou, hotan leiôi tini ê lamprotatôi hudati prospesoi.
Same entry in Photius and elsewhere, i.e. with the accusative case of the noun antanaklasis as headword. In Hesychius, however, the headword is the feminine present participle a)ntanaklwme/nh (quoted from the Septuagint: Wisdom of Solomon 17.18), a proper grammatical fit with the Suda's glossing phrase.
