Headword: Κρίνεσι στεφανοῖς
Adler number: kappa,2427
Translated headword: with lily crowns
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
That is, the abusive statements [coming] from you are, for me, crowns [made] out of lilies. [The word κρίνεσι ] is declined from the [noun] κρίνος ,[1] like τεῖχος . But some say it is a metaplasm.[2]
Greek Original:
Κρίνεσι στεφανοῖς: τουτέστιν αἱ λοιδορίαι αἱ παρὰ σοῦ στέφανοί μοί εἰσιν ἐκ κρίνων. κέκλιται δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ τὸ κρίνος, ὡς τὸ τεῖχος. οἱ δέ φασι μεταπλασμὸν εἶναι.
