Headword: Κατηλωκυῖα
Adler number: kappa,1049
Translated headword: having been nailed down
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] having been seized.
Greek Original:
Κατηλωκυῖα: κρατηθεῖσα.
The headword, attested only here but evidently quoted from somewhere, is the perfect passive participle, feminine nominative singular, of the compound verb κατηλόω (more commonly καθηλόω ). Without a context it is impossible to tell whether the subject is a woman or merely something grammatically feminine, and whether the use of the verb is literal or figurative.
See alpha 2056 for the noun κατήλωσις .
Keywords: architecture; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; imagery; trade and manufacture; women
