Adler number: kappa,1050
Translated headword: fall
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] a precipitation, a return.[1] "During a wintry fall of snow [...] he took refuge under a hollow rock."[2]
Greek Original:
Κατήλυσιν: ἐπέλευσιν, κάθοδον. χειμερίην νιφετοῖο κατήλυσιν ἐρημαίην ἦλθεν ὑπὸ σπιλάδα.
Notes:
[1] The headword, with broadly similar glossing in Hesychius and other lexica, is the accusative singular of kappa 1051 (where however the noun has a completely different meaning). It might be extracted from the quotation given, or equally well from Oppian, Halieutica 4.116; cf. the scholia there.
[2] An approximation (and abbreviation) of Greek Anthology 6.217.1-2, attributed to Simonides. The next two verses are quoted at alpha 3019.
