Adler number: chi,233
Translated headword: wintry season, wintry time
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[no gloss]

Χειμερινὸς καιρός.
Notes:
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (142); and cf. ps.-Herodian 150.
The headword phrase (for its adjective, see under kappa 2654) is probably quoted from the scholia to Hesiod, Theogony 148 (citing Chrysippus), on the three sons of Earth and Heaven: Kottos, Briareos and Gyges. Each is equated with a season of the year: Kottos with the angry heat of summer, Briareos with spring growth, and Gyges with winter.
