Headword: Κυτώσαντες
Adler number: kappa,2793
Translated headword: hollow-working
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning they] covering the hollow all around. "[They] hollow-encircling with oxhide."[1]
Greek Original:
Κυτώσαντες: τὸ κύτος περικαλύψαντες. βοείῳ δέρματι περικυτώσαντες.
The headword appears to be an aorist active participle, masculine nominative plural, from *κυτόω , a denominative formation from κύτος ('hollow'), kappa 2791. Yet neither it nor the compound derivative used in the quotation given (περικυτώσαντες , which also appears in kappa 2791 and tau 1164) occurs outside the Suda. In fact, no form of κυτόω or περικυτόω is otherwise attested.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; science and technology; trade and manufacture; zoology
