Headword: Λόφος
Adler number: lambda,704
Translated headword: ridge, crest
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] neck/throat. Also the top of the helmet.[1]
[Note] that 'horns' [are] the gleaming disks on the helmets, but 'crests' [are] the hairy parts.[2]
Greek Original:
Λόφος: τράχηλος. καὶ τὸ τῆς περικεφαλαίας ἄκρον. ὅτι φαλοὶ τὰ ἐπὶ τῶν περικεφαλαιῶν λαμπρὰ ἀσπιδίσκια, λόφοι δὲ αἱ τριχώσεις.
[1] = Synagoge lambda147, Photius lambda418 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius lambda1293. At base this seems to be commentary to Homer, where the headword occurs numerous times (e.g. Iliad 3.337, 23.508); cf. the scholia thereto, and Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (109.7). In the Suda see also lambda 703, lambda 745.
[2] This part, lacking (Adler reports) in ms V, seems to be drawn from the entry on φαλοί (phi 61); see also alpha 4549.
