Headword: Ἐνοικέτις τῶν νήσων
Adler number: epsilon,1497
Translated headword: she who inhabits the islands
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Referring to] Aphrodite. For she was especially honoured in them.
Greek Original:
Ἐνοικέτις τῶν νήσων: ἡ Ἀφροδίτη. ἐξαιρέτως γὰρ ἐν αὐταῖς ἐτιμᾶτο.
Note:
The headword phrase is found only here. For Aphrodite see generally alpha 4651, alpha 4652, alpha 4653. Apart from her birth - and ongoing significance - in Cyprus (kappa 2738) it is unclear why she should be especially associated with 'the islands', except perhaps in her capacity as patroness of seafarers (Pausanias 2.34.11, etc.).
Keywords: definition; geography; mythology; religion
