Headword: Ναυάγιον
Adler number: nu,45
Translated headword: shipwreckage
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In Thucydides ναυάγιον [is] neuter, when some part of the ship has been lost, e.g. the steering-oar or suchlike. But feminine[1] ναυαγία [means] the loss of the entire ship.
Greek Original:
Ναυάγιον: παρὰ Θουκυδίδῃ οὐδετέρως μέν, ὅταν τι τῆς νηὸς ἀπολεσθῇ, οἷον πηδάλιον ἤ τι τοιοῦτον. ναυαγία δὲ θηλυκῶς πᾶσα ἡ τῆς νηὸς ἀπώλεια.
Notes:
From glosses on Thucydides 1.50.3, where the headword occurs -- as is usual -- in the plural (see web address 1).
[1] (And differently-accented.) For this word see also nu 46.
