Headword: Νῆα
Adler number: nu,296
Translated headword: ship
Vetting Status: high
[νῆα is the same as] ναῦν ,[1] [meaning] boat.
But it is also made clear in the [commentaries] on the Iliad that πλοῖα ["boats"] differ from νῆες ["ships"], as the ancients designated them.[2]
Greek Original:
Νῆα: ναῦν, πλοῖον. ὅτι δὲ διαφέρει πλοῖα νηῶν, ὡς οἱ παλαιοὶ παρασημειοῦνται, δεδήλωται καὶ ἐν τοῖς εἰς τὴν Ἰλιάδα.
The headword is epic accusative singular of ναῦς ; the first gloss is the Attic form. In non-literary Hellenistic Greek ναῦς was replaced by πλοῖον .
cf. nu 303.
[1] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 1.141, where the headword occurs.
[2] This supplementary comment is a marginal addition in ms M.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
