Headword: Ἐσχάραι πυρός
Adler number: epsilon,3245
Translated headword: embers of fire
Vetting Status: high
Translation:

Notes:
= Synagoge epsilon879; Photius, Lexicon epsilon2043; and cf. Hesychius epsilon6447.
Theodoridis on Photius s.v. regards the headword phrase as quoted from Homer, Iliad 10.418, but if so, the lexica have reversed the word-order. For ἐσχάραι πυρός exactly, see Aeschylus, Eumenides 108 (dative singular), and Job 41:11 LXX.
cf. epsilon 3246 (and in a quite different context epsilon 3244); more generally epsilon 3242, epsilon 3243.
Keywords: daily life; definition; epic; food; imagery; poetry; religion; science and technology; tragedy
