Headword: Κερασφόρους
Adler number: kappa,1376
Translated headword: horned
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[κερασφ́ορους means the same as] κερατοφόρους .
Greek Original:
Κερασφόρους: κερατοφόρους.
Notes:
The Suda glosses here the original compound κερασφόρος (literally: horn-bearing), which unusually preserves the nominative in its first component, with the more transparent κερατοφόρος , using the late third declension.
The form presented here (though not in other lexica: see the references at Photius kappa590 Theodoridis) is the masculine accusative plural. It is attested four times before the Suda, and the likeliest source is Sophocles fr.89 Radt, quoted in Aelian, History of Animals 7.39: "[the deer] lifting its nose ... and the tines of its horns crept at ease".
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; medicine; tragedy; zoology
