Headword: Κάττης
Adler number: kappa,1062
Translated headword: cat
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Κάττης ], [genitive] κάττου . [Meaning] the domestic cat [ailouros].
Greek Original:
Κάττης, κάττου: ὁ κατοικίδιος αἴλουρος.
Notes:
For αἴλουρος see alphaiota 185, sigma 911.
As regards the present entry, both katta (feminine: LSJ entry at web address 1) and kattos (masculine) are attested. (Evagrius Scholasticus (C6 CE) implies that this was the commonly used word, and ailouros the learned word (PG 86.2880B); see Lampe s.v.) Thus one might have supposed the present entry's κάττης, κάττου to be two genitives, feminine and masculine, but in fact κάττης is also attested as a nominative: see George the Monk, Chronicon 253.9 (κύων καὶ κάττης "dog and cat"), and under omicroniota 64.
