Headword: Λευκόν
Adler number: lambda,332
Translated headword: white, clear
Vetting Status: high
[Note] that 'white' [is] also homonymous,[1] just like 'good'.[2] What in reference to the body is called 'white' means color, which is under [the category of] quality, and [what is called 'white'] in the voice [means] its activity; for a voice easy to hear is called 'clear'; and it is easy to hear the [sound] which strongly and quickly affects the hearing. Similarly, 'acute' might be shown [as being] homonymous.
Greek Original:
Λευκόν: ὅτι καὶ τὸ λευκὸν ὁμώνυμον, ὥσπερ τὸ ἀγαθόν. τὸ μὲν ἐπὶ τοῦ σώματος λεγόμενον τὸ λευκὸν χρῶμα σημαίνει, ὅπερ ἐστὶν ὑπὸ τὴν ποιότητα, τὸ δὲ ἐπὶ τῆς φωνῆς τὸ ποιεῖν: λευκὴ γὰρ λέγεται φωνὴ ἡ εὐήκοος: εὐήκοος δέ ἐστιν ἡ τὴν ἀκοὴν σφοδρῶς καὶ ταχέως ἀλλοιοῦσα. ὁμοίως καὶ τὸ ὀξὺ δεικνύοιτ' ἂν ὁμώνυμον.
The headword is neuter singular of the adjective λευκός ; and entry as a whole is taken from Alexander of Aphrodisias, Commentaries on Aristotle's Topica 106.16-20 (on Topics 107a36-b5).
[1] Note generally LSJ s.v. ὁμώνυμος IV: 'in the Logic of Arist[otle] τὰ ὁμώνυμα are things having the same name but different natures and definitions'.
