Headword: *diktuwth/
Adler number: delta,1116
Translated headword: latticed
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] grate-shaped.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the masculine] diktuwto/s, [meaning] complex.[2]
Greek Original:
*diktuwth/: kagkellwth/. kai\ *diktuwto/s, o( polu/plokos.
[1] = Synagoge delta295, Photius delta611, Hesychius delta1838 (contrast delta1840). The headword is feminine nominative singular of the adjective diktuwto/s (derived from di/ktuon 'net'; cf. delta 1115), a form unattested prior to the Suda outside lexicography, although the feminine is found frequently in other cases in reference to a latticed door (with the feminine noun qu/ra ('door') expressed or not; cf. Etymologicum Magnum 513.5. Many instances of the word are Biblical; Latte in his edition of Hesychius suggests Judges 5.28 LXX, where the headword appears, although in the genitive case: h( mh/thr *si/sara dia\ th=s diktuwth=s e)pible/pousa, "Sisara’s mother…peeping through the latticed [door]." (web address 1). In any event the adjective is often related to doors, windows or other parts of buildings. See Theodoret on 2 Kings 1.2 fwtagwgou\s diktuoeidw=s kateskeuasme/nas, a(\s diatrh/tous o)noma/zousin oi( polloi/; on Ezechiel 41.16 quri/das diktuwta/s, toute/sti, diatrh/tous diktu/w| e)oikui/as.
[2] Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (442). The headword here is masculine, but as there is no other attestation of a figurative sense that might be applied to humans (e.g. 'complex-minded') probably refers to inanimate things that happen to be grammatically masculine, as at Diodorus Siculus 18.26.6.
