Headword: Ἑρπηστικός
Adler number: epsilon,3078
Translated headword: reptilian
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a creeping [animal].
Greek Original:
Ἑρπηστικός: ὁ ἕρπων.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. Headword and gloss are etymologically closer in the Greek than they sound in translation.
The headword is better spelled ἑρπυστικός (as twice under sigma 158, and see generally LSJ s.v.), but the alphabetization requires eta here. See also epsilon 3077.
Keywords: definition; zoology
