Headword: Αἰπύκερως ἔλαφος
Adler number: alphaiota,275
Translated headword: high-horned stag
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one] having lofty horns.
Greek Original:
Αἰπύκερως ἔλαφος: ὑψηλὰ κέρατα ἔχων.
The adjective here is confined to lexica and grammars, where it appears either alone or describing a goat or (as here) a stag.
In the Greek, the headword phrase sounds like the first half of a line of hexameter verse, and if so, was presumably a quotation: see the Appendix to Crusius' edition of Babrius, p. 215.
