Greek display:    

Headword: Κατήλυσις
Adler number: kappa,1051
Translated headword: descent, return
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a prostitute.
Greek Original:
Κατήλυσις: ἡ πόρνη.
The transmitted gloss makes no obvious sense and surely needs emendation. Kuehn's change (noted by Adler) from πόρνη to πορεία ('journey') is very plausible. Compare alpha 1203, phi 807, and esp. eta 274.
For this headword see also kappa 1050.
Keywords: definition; gender and sexuality; geography; women
