Headword: *kainai\ po/leis
Adler number: kappa,1168
Translated headword: Kainai cities (?)
Vetting Status: high
[no gloss]
Greek Original:
*kainai\ po/leis.
The headword phrase is made more ambiguous than it needed to be by Adler's (routine) capitalization of the initial adjective. If the adjective is actually lower-case, the phrase simply means 'new/fresh cities'. But more probably the entry has been generated by Xenophon, Anabasis 2.4.28: in Media X. and his colleagues come to 'a large and prosperous polis called Kainai' (po/lis...mega/lh kai\ eu)dai/mwn o)/noma *kainai/): web address 1. Kainai has been tentatively located at present-day Takrit, in Iraq (RE s.v.; Barrington Atlas Register 2.1310).
