Headword: Ἱμητόν
Adler number: iota,355
Translated headword: drawn from a well
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] something pulled up [from a well].[1]
For ἱμονιά [is] the rope for drawing water.[2]
"But the Avars went where the Danapris river flows."[3]
Greek Original:
Ἱμητόν: τὸ ἀντλητόν. Ἱμονιὰ γὰρ τὸ τοῦ ἀντλήματος σχοινίον. οἱ δὲ Ἄβαροι ἐχώρουν ἵνα ὁ Δάναπρις ἔρρει ποταμός.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in other lexica. The headword comes from ἱμάω ; cf. iota 331, iota 359, and see also alpha 2470.
[2] cf. scholion on Aristophanes, Frogs 1297; see also iota 356, iota 357, iota 358.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable, though presumably from late historiography. (Adler notes Toup's suggested attribution to Menander Protector.) For the Avars see generally under alpha 18. The river 'Danapris', a.k.a. Borysthenes, is the present-day Dnieper, which flows SW into the top of the Black Sea.
