Headword: Λιμοδωριεῖς
Adler number: lambda,555
Translated headword: Famine-Dorians
Vetting Status: high
Those Peloponnesians who because of famine migrated into Rhodes and Knidos.
Greek Original:
Λιμοδωριεῖς: Πελοποννησίων οἱ διὰ λιμὸν μετοικήσαντες εἰς Ῥόδον καὶ Κνίδον.
Same entry in Photius (lambda314 Theodoridis), and cf. more fully Hesychius lambda1041. The episode is undated, but presumably early.
Outside lexicography, the term is attested in e.g. a proverb-collection attributed to Plutarch (where only Rhodes, not Knidos, is mentioned) and in ps.-Scylax, Periplous 62 (a variant tradition naming Erineos, Boion and Kytinion, in Doris, central Greece).
Keywords: aetiology; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; geography; historiography; history; proverbs
