Headword: Ἐγκύμονος
Adler number: epsilon,136
Translated headword: pregnant
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning her] being with child.[1] Also [sc. attested is the phrase?] pregnant woman.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐγκύμονος: ἐγκύου οὔσης. καὶ Ἔγκυος γυνή.
Notes:
[1] The headword ἐγκύμονος is genitive singular -- evidently quoted from somewhere -- of the adjective ἐγκύμων "pregnant". In the phrase which glosses it ἐγκύου (genitive of the quoted nominative ἔγκυος , on which see next note) is from the same root and also means "pregnant" or "with child". Compare pi 1405 for a quotation from Josephus, Jewish War 3.245-7 (web address 1). It is perhaps the source of the form ἐγκύμονος in the present entry, though there are numerous other possibilities.
[2] If this two-word phrase is a verbatim quotation, its source is indeterminable. But it may not be: compare Hesychius epsilon272, where the lemma is the adjective alone, glossed with γυνὴ ἐγγαστρωμένη .
