Adler number: nu,221

[Meaning] recently imprinted. Sophocles [writes]: "his tracks new-imprinted". For whenever the prints of animals occur recently, hunters prefer to follow them, before the scent is eliminated by the wind.[1]
Greek Original:
Νεοχάρακτα: νεωστὶ κεχαραγμένα. Σοφοκλῆς: ἴχνη τὰ κείνου νεοχάρακτα. ὁπόταν γὰρ νεωστὶ αἱ ἀποχαράξεις τῶν ζῴων γένωνται, μᾶλλον ἐπακολουθοῦσιν οἱ κυνηγέται, πρὶν ὑπὸ ἀνέμου ἀφανισθῇ ἡ ὀδμή.
