Headword: Αἱ νῆτται
Adler number: alphaiota,219
Translated headword: the ducks
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[αἱ νῆτται means the same as] αἱ νῆσσαι ."[1]
But Ainitai [means] the people from Ainos.[2]
Greek Original:
Αἱ νῆτται: αἱ νῆσσαι. Αἰνῖται δὲ οἱ ἀπὸ τῆς Αἴνου.
Notes:
[1] The headword noun is the Attic form of this nominative plural, the "gloss" its epic/Ionic equivalent; cf. nu 338. The phrase as a whole, with the definite article, is doubtless quoted from Aristophanes, Birds 1148.
[2] (Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in mss AF.) From alphaiota 225. In Byzantine and modern pronunciation, αἱ νῆτται and Αἰνῖται are homophonous.
