[Dissylabic νῆϋς means the same as] ναῦς .
Greek Original:
Νῆϋς: ἡ ναῦς.
The headword is the epic nominative singular νηῦς but with the diphthong resolved.
The entry derives from a scholion on Homer, Odyssey 1.185, where however editors read the correct monosyllabic form. At nu 296 and nu 303, the Suda offers legitimately disyllabic forms of this noun.
