Headword: Νᾶμα
Adler number: nu,23
Translated headword: flow
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] drinking water.[1]
"A place irrigated by flowing waters".[2]
Greek Original:
Νᾶμα: ὕδωρ ποτόν. τόπος κατάρρυτος ναματιαίοις ὕδασι.
Notes:
On the (mainly poetic) headword see generally LSJ s.v.; and see also upsilon 40.
[1] The glossing phrase is translated here as Adler punctuates it, but note that in Photius nu14 there is a comma between the two words.
[2] Evidently a quotation; perhaps an approximation of Timaeus FGrH 566 F164 (in Diodorus Siculus 5.19.3) on Sicily, κατάρρυτος ... ναματιαίοις καὶ γλυκέσιν ὕδασι .
