Greek display:    

Headword: Ἐσσηνός
Adler number: epsilon,3132
Translated headword: Essenos, Essenus, Essene
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the citizen.
Greek Original:
Ἐσσηνός: ὁ πολίτης.
Notes:
Differently accented from the genitive of epsilon 3131 (q.v.).
For the Essenes, members of ascetic Jewish religious communities described by Josephus and others, see epsilon 3123 and OCD(4) s.v. But the present entry, unparalleled in other lexica, is obscure and (seemingly) uncomprehending. Perhaps (CR) the headword is a truncation of Ἐδεσσηνός "Edessene", for which see epsilon 208.
Keywords: definition; geography; politics; religion
