Headword: Ναυσικάα
Adler number: nu,70
Translated headword: Nausikaa, Nausicaa
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A proper name.[1]
Homer mentions Nausikaa, a royal Phaiacian child, [named] appropriately for the [Phaiacian] land; because, as mariners par excellence, they used to burn [ἐπέ-κα-ιον ] pitch onto their ships [ναυσί ] to make them secure.[2]
Greek Original:
Ναυσικάα: ὄνομα κύριον. μέμνηται Ὅμηρος Ναυσικάας Φαιακικῆς βασιλικῆς παιδὸς προσφυῶς τῇ χώρᾳ: ἐπεὶ ναυτικώτατοι ὄντες ἐπέκαιον ταῖς ναυσὶ πίσσαν πρὸς ἀσφάλειαν.
Notes:
[1] In (principally) Homer, Odyssey 6-8. (First at 6.17: web address 1.) See generally OCD(4) s.v. Nausicaa; and cf. alpha 1817 (= omicron 671 = sigma 1720), alpha 2148, phi 457.
[2] A marginal addition in ms M, proposing an etymology that is almost certainly incorrect.
