Headword: Λογγῶνος
Adler number: lambda,662
Translated headword: mooring-stone, pierced-stone
Vetting Status: high
klimenos of the stone.
Greek Original:
Λογγῶνος: τοῦ λίθου κλιμένος.
For the import of the headword see generally LSJ s.v. λογγάσια (sic), a neuter plural: "stones with holes in them, through which mooring cables were passed". For this see Hesychius lambda1193 Photius lambda370 Theodoridis, and Glossarium Italioticum 32 Kassel-Austin. The Suda's headword λογγῶνος appears to be the genitive singular of a synonymous noun λογγών (claimed as a Syracusan word in Etymologicum Genuinum and Etymologicum Magnum); note, however, that such a genitive singular appears only here, and may be in error for the nominative plural λογγῶνες in other lexica.
The glossing phrase presents problems of its own. Its final word, transmitted as κλιμένος , might be something like "called"; alternatively it is a foreshortening of κεκλιμένος (cf. kappa 1246); but Adler's apparatus flags up attempts by Hemsterhuys and others to explain it as a garbling of a word or phrase involving λιμήν (lambda 544).
