Headword: Ἰσοϋψεῖς
Adler number: iota,670
Translated headword: equal in height
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"Houses [equal in height] and parallel to the wall, being in Siphlos [as] lodgings for those who work the gold mines."[1]
So [the adjective] ἰσοϋψής is declined ἰσοϋψοῦς [in the genitive].
Greek Original:
Ἰσοϋψεῖς οἰκίαι καὶ παράλληλοι τῷ τείχει, ἐν Σιφλῷ οὖσαι καταλύματα τοῖς ἐργαζομένοις τὰ χρύσεια μέταλλα. ἰσοϋψὴς οὖν ἰσοϋψοῦς κλίνεται.
Note:
[1] Quotation unidentifiable. 'Siphlos', accepted by Adler, is unparalleled. Portus attractively suggested emending to 'Siphnos', which is known to have had silver mines (Herodotus 3.57; sigma 511). Bernhardy went for lower-case στύφλος .
Keywords: architecture; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; historiography; science and technology; trade and manufacture
