Headword: Ἤκιστος
Adler number: eta,175
Translated headword: least
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] smallest.[1] From the [word] ἦκα , which is softly.[2] But it turns into the [word] smallest. And [sc. in epic] it should be pronounced without aspiration, not as it is aspirated among the Attic-speakers.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἤκιστος: ἐλάχιστος. παρὰ τὸ ἦκα, ὅ ἐστιν ἡσυχῆ. καταστρέφει δὲ εἰς τὸ ἐλάχιστον. καὶ ψιλῶς προενεκτέον, οὐχ ὡς παρὰ τοῖς Ἀττικοῖς δασύνεται.
Notes:
[1] Similarly in Hesychius (eta298); and cf. eta 174.
