Headword: Γεῶρες
Adler number: gamma,173
Translated headword: sojourners(?)
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] earth-guardians.
Greek Original:
Γεῶρες: οἱ γεωφύλακες.
Notes:
Same gloss in Hesychius; similar in the Ambrosian Lexicon, according to Adler. Apparently from γῆ and *ὀρf- (as in οὖρος in LSJ); a relationship with γειώρας "sojourner, proselyte" is uncertain.
See also gamma 218 (and cf. gamma 219).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion
