Headword: Αἱ ἐμαὶ πόλεις
Adler number: alphaiota,94
Translated headword: cities mine
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] my cities.[1]
Greek Original:
Αἱ ἐμαὶ πόλεις. αἱ πόλεις μου.
Notes:
The headword phrase is presumably a quotation but is nowhere attested before the Suda. (There is a solitary post-Suda instance, in Maximus Planudes' [C13] Greek version of Ovid's Metamorphoses 10.304.) In any event, it uses the possessive adjective ἐμαί , a classical form, which is glossed by the genitive pronoun μου , more commonly used in later Greek.
cf. epsilon 967.
[1] Gloss lacking, Adler reports, in mss FV.
Keywords: chronology; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; poetry
