Headword: Διαμησάμενος
Adler number: delta,654
Translated headword: having cut through
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he] having dug through.[1] "For having cut through all the sand under the skirts of Olympus, he found much drinkable water".[2]
And elsewhere: "having cut through the snow on it [...] he finished building up the edge of the cliff".[3]
Greek Original:
Διαμησάμενος: διορύξας. διαμησάμενος γὰρ πᾶσαν τὴν ὑπὸ τὰ κράσπεδα τοῦ Ὀλύμπου ἄμμον ὕδωρ πολὺ καὶ πότιμον εὗρεν. καὶ αὖθις: διαμησάμενος τὴν χιόνα τὴν ἐπ' αὐτῇ ἐξῳκοδόμει τὸν κρημνόν.
Notes:
The headword participle is illustrated by both of the quotations given.
[1] cf. alpha 1578.
[2] Adler misplaces her Polybius reference -- see next note -- here. In fact this quotation, not identified by her, is identifiable via the TLG as a version of a sentence in Zonaras' epitome of Cassius Dio (vol. I p.297.11-12 Boissevain). See in brief C. Theodoridis in his Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXIX. Favuzzi (below) 219-221 takes up the matter more fully, seeking to determine how far Zonaras preserves Dio's ipsissima verba.
[3] Polybius 3.55.6 (abridged and paraphrased), on Hannibal's crossing of the Alps.
