Headword: Λύγα
Adler number: lambda,766
Translated headword: twilight
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] dark [things]. "For she [Artemis] appeared to her [Hegelochia] next to the threads of the loom, like twilight of fire".[1]
Greek Original:
Λύγα: σκοτεινά. ἐφάνη γάρ οἱ αὐτὰ ἱστοῦ παρὰ κρόκαισιν ὡς λύγα πυρός.
Notes:
The headword seems to be the neuter nominative/accusative plural of an adjective λύγος , equivalent to λυγαῖος ; but in the quotation which follows it is a Doric form of the feminine noun λύγη (LSJ s.v.: web address 1). See also lambda 770.
[1] Greek Anthology 6.266.3-4 (Hegesippus); cf. epsilon 3119. Note that Paton's Loeb does not follow the indirect tradition as given in the present entry; instead, Paton prints the simile ὡς αὐγὰ πυρός "like light of fire".
