Headword: Χυτρόπους
Adler number: chi,621
Translated headword: pot-stand
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"When coming in and going out to his companions Sallustius saw that the pot-stands were always unstained and un-smoky, just as if they had been set up for sale in the market-place; he used to consider it very important to have an uncooked dinner most of the time."[1]
Greek Original:
Χυτρόπους. εἰσιὼν καὶ ἐξιὼν ὁ Σαλούστιος πρὸς τοὺς ἑταίρους ἑώρα τοὺς χυτρόποδας ἀχράντους ἀεὶ καὶ ἀκάπνους, ὥσπερ ἐν ἀγορᾷ πρὸς ὠνὴν ἐγκειμένους: ἐποιεῖτο δὲ μέγιστον ἀπύρῳ διαίτῃ κεχρῆσθαι πολὺν χρόνον.
Notes:
The unglossed headword, nominative singular (cf. under epsilon 3212), occurs as an accusative plural in the quotation.
Comparable lemma, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (401).
