Headword: Νικήτας
Adler number: nu,386
Translated headword: Niketas, Nicetas
Vetting Status: high
A proper name. A Doric [dialect] one. So also [there is] Philetas and Philetes[1] according to Dorians. Both common nouns have the accent [on the last syllable] lowered [in forming the proper names] to distinguish them from the epithets νικητής ["victor"] and φιλητής ["lover"].
Greek Original:
Νικήτας: ὄνομα κύριον. Δωρικόν. οὕτω καὶ Φιλήτας καὶ φιλήτης κατὰ Δωριεῖς. βαρύνεται δὲ ἄμφω τὰ κοινὰ πρὸς διαστολὴν ἐπιθέτων τοῦ, ὁ νικητὴς καὶ ὁ φιλητής.
cf. nu 385, nu 387.
[1] Adler prints this word in lower case, but the overall sense of the entry surely requires another proper name.
