Headword: Νυμφεῖος οἶκος
Adler number: nu,593
Translated headword: bridal house
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning that] in which the brides [or: nymphs] are.[1] But [sc. with the adjective differently spelled] νύμφιος κόσμος ["bridal adornment, adornment of a bride"] [is used] possessively, like Tyrian ["of Tyre"], Phrygian ["of Phrygia"], Lydian ["of Lydia"].[2]
"On the day when the bridal chamber was lit with a lamp, then you obtained a pyre, not marriage."[3]
Greek Original:
Νυμφεῖος οἶκος: ἐν ᾧ αἱ νύμφαι εἰσί. Νύμφιος δὲ κόσμος, κτητικῶς, ὡς Τύριος, Φρύγιος, Λύδιος. ἠματίᾳ ᾧ νύμφιος ἀνήπτετο λαμπάδι παστάς, τούτῳ πυρκαϊῆς οὐ ναλάμων ἔτυχες.
[1] For the headword phrase, Adler compares Ambrosian Lexicon 35, as well as ps.-Zonaras nu1408 and Philoponus (de vocabulis nu4).
[2] Similarly in the Synagoge, Photius (nu289 Theodoridis), and Lexica Segueriana 310.10.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.188.7-8. Line 7 should begin ἤματι δ'ᾧ . The penultimate word is θαλάμων ; Adler regards the erroneous ναλάμων in the Suda as influenced by ναμάτων in nu 594.
