Headword: Γαμψώνυχος
Adler number: gamma,53
Translated headword: of a crooked-taloned one
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] of one having curving talons.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] γαμψώνυχα ζῷα ["crooked-taloned creatures"], those birds which have their beak curved below their jaw; such a one is the eagle, the hawk, the kestrel and others which do not drink.[2]
Greek Original:
Γαμψώνυχος: ἐπικαμπεῖς ἔχοντος τοὺς ὄνυχας. καὶ Γαμψώνυχα ζῷα, ὅσα τῶν πτερωτῶν τὴν ἐπιρυγχίδα γεγάμψωκεν ὑπὸ τὴν γένυν, οἷός ἐστιν ἀετὸς, ἱέραξ, κεγχρηὶ̈ς ἄλλα τε τὰ μὴ πίνοντα.
Notes:
cf. generally gamma 52, gamma 54, gamma 55.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; the headword, genitive case, is evidently quoted from somewhere. For the glossing cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 16.428, where the nominative plural of the headword occurs (describing vultures).
[2] Again at epsilon 2556; see also kappa 1223, rho 282.
