Headword: *laistrugo/nos
Adler number: lambda,204
Translated headword: Laistrygon
Vetting Status: high
Name of a city.
Greek Original:
*laistrugo/nos: o)/noma po/lews.
Here in the genitive case, *laistrugo/nos. However, this is evidently quoted from Homer, Odyssey 10.106 and/or 199, where we see what this genitive really is: 'daughter of Antiphates the Laistrygon'. (Adler's note suggests, following Cohn, that -- as in ps.-Zonaras -- the present headword should actually be Laitrina, in Elis.)
cf. generally lambda 203 and the note there.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; geography; mythology
