Γλήνη: κόρη ὀφθαλμοῦ. ἢ ὄρη. παρὰ τὸ ὁρᾶν. Γλίνη δὲ ὁ ῥύπος διὰ τοῦ ι.
Notes:
Similar material, variously, in other lexica. See further below, and cf. tau 961.
[1] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 8.164, where the headword occurs.
[2] Theodoridis on Photius s.v. obelizes ὀρη and footnotes the comment 'i.e. κόρη ' (as in Hesychius and elsewhere). That is probably correct, though see next note.
[3] Whoever added this etymological comment evidently intended it to explain ὄρη , construed as "he/she/it sees"; cf. generally LSJ s.v. ὄρημι .
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; medicine
