Headword: Εἰροπόκοις
Adler number: epsiloniota,203
Translated headword: woolly-fleeced
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] having fleeces of wool.[1] Πόκοι ["fleeces"] are so-called from [the verb] πέκειν , which is to comb.[2]
Greek Original:
Εἰροπόκοις: ἐρίων πόκοις ἔχουσι. πόκοι δὲ εἴρηνται παρὰ τὸ πέκειν, ὅ ἐστι ξαίνειν.
cf. generally epsiloniota 197, epsiloniota 201, epsiloniota 204.
[1] Adler prints the dative πόκοις , but some mss read the accusative πόκους , as the sense requires.
[2] cf. scholion on Homer, Iliad 5.137, where the dative-plural headword occurs (web address 1). Likewise or similarly in other lexica. For the verb πέκειν , cf. pi 918.
