Headword: Μονοκρήπιδι
Adler number: mu,1229
Translated headword: to the one with a single sandal
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to Hermes. For they say that when this god gave Perseus one of his shoes, as Perseus left after cutting Gorgo's [head off], he was left with only one shoe.
Greek Original:
Μονοκρήπιδι: τῷ Ἑρμῇ. φασὶ γὰρ τὸν θεὸν τοῦτον Περσεῖ ἐπὶ τὴν τῆς Γοργοῦς τομὴν ἀπιόντι τὸ ἕτερον τῶν ὑποδημάτων δόντα, τὸ ἕτερον ἔχειν μόνον.
The dative singular headword is quoted from Artemidorus 4.63; Hermes is in the dative because an offering is made to him after a dream.
The myth of the single sandal applies normally to Jason, and the myths may have become confused in this passage; Artemidorus mentions Lycophron in passing, but Lycophron (Alexandra 1310) uses the adjective to refer to Jason.
