Headword: Νοσοκομεῖον
Adler number: nu,493
Translated headword: infirmary, hospital
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the guest-chamber.[1]
In order for it to mean to have a disease [νόσος ], instead of a condition [πάθος ] or a habit [ἔθος ]: the [feminine noun] νόσος being understood rather than any particular neuter [noun such as πάθος or ἔθος ].[2]
Greek Original:
Νοσοκομεῖον: ὁ ξενών. ἵνα ᾖ τὸ νόσον ἔχειν, ἀντὶ τοῦ πάθος ἢ ἔθος τι ἔχειν: νοουμένης τῆς νόσου ἀντὶ οὐδετέρου τοῦδέ τινος.
The headword is a neuter noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular; see LSJ s.v. Only in late antiquity did it acquire the sense of guest quarters: see e.g. Justinian, Novellae 582.33 (late C5), where it occurs (among other instances) together with the present gloss.
For the lemma, Adler also cites the unpublished Ambrosian Lexicon (348).
[1] The gloss is a masculine noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular; see LSJ s.v. The headword is identically glossed at ps.-Zonaras 1407.6.
[2] In her critical apparatus, Adler notes that this additional remark occurs only in the margins of mss MB. For 'to have a disease' cf. nu 494.
