Headword: Νήδυμος
Adler number: nu,300
Translated headword: sweet
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[A description of] pleasant and sweet sleep.
Or [sleep] which is deep and from which one cannot escape; from the privative νη and the verb δύω .
Greek Original:
Νήδυμος: ὁ ἡδὺς καὶ γλυκὺς ὕπνος. ἢ ὁ βαθὺς καὶ ἀνέκδυτος: παρὰ τὸ νη στερητικὸν καὶ τὸ δύω ῥῆμα.
Note:
Epic epithet of sleep = ἥδυμος , from which it arises through false division in the Homeric text (see LSJ s.v.). For the glosses here cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 2.2. See R. Führer on the possibilities of etymology and meaning, with full bibliography. On the privative νη , see nu 295.
