Headword: Ἐπίστιον
Adler number: epsilon,2629
Translated headword: ship-shed, ship-slip
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] military lodging.[1]
Herodotus [writes]: "[Kleomenes] expelled the Athenians' households".[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπίστιον: στρατιωτικὸν κατάλυμα. Ἡρόδοτος: ὁ δὲ ἀγηλατέει τὰ ἐπίστια Ἀθηναίων.
Notes:
[1] The neuter headword occurs in Homer and elsewhere: see LSJ s.v. This definition of it comes from glosses on Herodotus -- see next note -- and there is something similar in Hesychius (epsilon5253).
[2] An abridgment of Herodotus 5.72.1, where however epistia has nothing to with the present headword; cf. epsilon 2630.
