Headword: Κρημνώδη κατανίφει
Adler number: kappa,2389
Translated headword: [if] it snows precipitously
Vetting Status: high
If [spelled] with eta, [κρημνά ] means "greatly",[1] but if with iota, κρίμνα [is] a kind of meal, from which flour is made, that is wheat-meal;[2] and λευκαίνειν [is] to sprinkle.[3] Homer [says]: "when snow sprinkled the fields."[4]
Greek Original:
Κρημνώδη κατανίφει: εἰ μὲν διὰ τοῦ η ἀντὶ τοῦ μεγάλα, εἰ δὲ διὰ τοῦ ι κρίμνα εἶδος ἀλεύρου, ἐξ οὗ ἡ παιπάλη γίνεται, τουτέστι τὸ ἄλευρον: καὶ τὸ λευκαίνειν παλύνειν. Ὅμηρος: ὅτε πέρ τε χιὼν ἐπάλυνεν ἀρούρας.
The headword phrase comes from Aristophanes, Clouds 965; cf. kappa 2261. The scholia there lie behind the gloss here (but note n.3 below).
