Headword: Νεόφθιτον
Adler number: nu,217
Translated headword: new-perished
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning something] having recently died, having recently been corrupted.
Greek Original:
Νεόφθιτον: νεωστὶ τελευτῆσαν, νεωστὶ φθαρέν.
Note:
The headword is glossed as neuter nominative/accusative (rather than masculine accusative singular) of this very rare adjective, and must be quoted from somewhere. Same entry in other lexica (references at Photius nu153 Theodoridis) and similar ones elsewhere. In particular, Hesychius nu367 has the phrase νεόφθιτος κόρη "newly corrupted maiden" -- a fragment of Attic tragedy (Tragica adespota fr.240 Nauck and Kannicht-Snell) -- glossed as ἡ ἄρτι φθαρεῖσα, ἡ τελευτήσασα "she who has just been corrupted (or, killed), she who has died".
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; gender and sexuality; tragedy; women
