Headword: Νώνυμος
Adler number: nu,554
Translated headword: unknown
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] nameless, inglorious.
In the Iliad[1] it is also attested as νώνυμνος with an extra nu, or otherwise without an epsilon, so as to mean someone not hymned.[2]
"There will be no sun unhymned of lyric Sappho."[3]
Greek Original:
Νώνυμος: ἀνώνυμος, ἄδοξος. ἐν Ἰλιάδι ἐστὶν καὶ νώνυμνος πλεονασμῷ τοῦ νυ, ἢ καὶ ἄλλως κατὰ στέρησιν ε ψιλῆς, ἵν' ᾖ ὁ μὴ ὑμνούμενος. οὐδέ τις ἔσται τῆς λυρικῆς Σαπφοῦς νώνυμος ἠέλιος.
The headword is an archaic adjective, from *ne- and *onom(n).
cf. ps-Zonaras s.vv. νωνύμους and νωνύμνους , Photius (mu316 Theodoridis) and Hesychius (mu794) s.v. νώνυμος and Etymologicum Magnum s.v. νωνύμους .
[1] See Homer, Iliad 12.70 = 13.227 = 14.70 (web addresses 1-3), with the corresponding scholia and Eustathius ad loc. And cf. Homer, Odyssey 1.222 (web address 4)
[2] As if the adjective were derived from the middle/passive participle ὑμνούμενος by dropping the epsilon.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.17.7-8, from a pseudo-epitaph for Sappho (sigma 107) by Tullius Laurea.
