Headword: Ἰβυκανητῶν
Adler number: iota,77
Translated headword: buglers
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. Named] from their inventor Ibycus.[1] "A mass of buglers and trumpeters".[2]
Greek Original:
Ἰβυκανητῶν: ἀπὸ Ἰβύκου εὑρετοῦ. ἰβυκανητῶν καὶ σαλπιγκτῶν πλῆθος.
Notes:
The headword, genitive plural, purports to be extracted from the quotation given, but see notes below.
[1] For Ibycus see generally iota 80. This erroneous etymological explanation, again at iota 79, arises from the textual corruption of βυκανητῶν in Polybius (see next note) into ἰβυκανητῶν . For bugles see beta 591.
[2] Polybius 2.29.6 (web address 1), more fully at iota 79.
