Headword: Κηφηὶ̈ς γῆ
Adler number: kappa,1560
Translated headword: Kephean land
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] that of Kepheus.
Greek Original:
Κηφηὶ̈ς γῆ: ἡ τοῦ Κηφέως.
Notes:
For Kepheus see kappa 1559. The present headword phrase is used as a periphrasis for 'Ethiopia' (alphaiota 126, alphaiota 127) by Nicander, Alexipharmaka 100 (accusative case); cf. the scholia there.
Similarly (adjective only), according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon; and more fully than the Suda in ps.-Zonaras and in Etymologicum Magnum 512.14-15.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; mythology; poetry
