Adler number: gamma,257
Translated headword: earth's statue
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
They model Hestia as a woman, like the earth, holding up a kettledrum, since the earth encloses the winds below herself.
Greek Original:
Γῆς ἄγαλμα: γυναῖκα πλάττουσι τὴν Ἑστίαν, οἱονεὶ τὴν γῆν, τύμπανον βαστάζουσαν, ἐπειδὴ τοὺς ἀνέμους ἡ γῆ ὑφ' ἑαυτὴν συγκλείει.
Note:
(Again under epsilon 3212.) Unduly abbreviated from ps.-Codinus, Patria Constantinopoleos 2.13 (Preger, Scriptores originum Constantinopolitanarum 157.3-6): 'they say that Hestia was a woman and they model her etc.'.
