Headword: Kentrênekees
Adler number: kappa,1339
Translated headword: spurred-on
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[kentrhneke/es]; [note] also [the singular] kentrhnekh/s, [meaning] one being struck with a goad.
Greek Original:
Kentrênekees: kai Kentrênekês, ho kentrôi plêssomenos.
Notes:
The unglossed primary headword is an epic nominative plural. It is generated by the corresponding accusative plural, used of horses, in Homer, Iliad 5.752 and 8.396. All other instances of the word are discussions of the formula; it is frequently glossed, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, Pausanias the Atticist, Hesychius, Orion [Author, Myth], the Etymologicum Magnum, and scholiasts.
The wording of the present gloss (for the corresponding nominative singular) is unique to the Suda.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; zoology
