Headword: Ἐγκοπή
Adler number: epsilon,113
Translated headword: hindrance, incision
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning an] obstacle, obstruction.[1]
"Without incisions and rungs it was not [possible] to climb up the rock."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐγκοπή: ἔνεδρον, ἐμπόδιον. χωρὶς ἐγκοπῶν καὶ κλημακτήρων οὐκ ἦν ἐπιβῆναι τῆς πέτρας.
Notes:
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica; references at Photius epsilon54 Theodoridis, where the editor notes Gaisford's opinion that the headword comes from the New Testament (1 Corinthians 9.12, accusative case). The glossing, in any event, illustrates LSJ's sense II of the headword, rather than the one in the quotation which follows here.
[2] Quotation (again at kappa 1776) unidentifiable. See also epsilon 112.
Keywords: Christianity; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; geography; religion
