Headword: Ἐπιχειλές
Adler number: epsilon,2768
Translated headword: rim-full
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This is the term for a measure which is not filled but falling short. Aristophanes [writes]: "[Themistocles] made our city full, having found it [sc. merely] rim-full."
Greek Original:
Ἐπιχειλές: οὕτω λέγεται μέτρον τὸ μὴ πλῆρες, ἀλλ' ἀπολειπόμενον. Ἀριστοφάνης: τὴν πόλιν ἡμῶν μεστὴν ἐποίησεν εὑρὼν ἐπιχειλῆ.
Notes:
The Aristophanic quotation has been given more fully at alpha 2737.
The present entry's headword, neuter nominative-accusative singular of this adjective -- and glossed accordingly (cf. already Hesychius epsilon5426, glossing τὸ ἐλλιπές , and Pollux 5.133) -- must be quoted from somewhere else. An extant possibility is Synesius, Dion 14.
Keywords: biography; comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; history; imagery; politics; rhetoric; trade and manufacture
