Headword: Ναύσταθμον
Adler number: nu,78
Translated headword: anchorage, roadstead
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a harbour.[1]
The places also used to be fenced with a skin, to prevent harm to the planking. Or because the naval force is called a naustathmos.[2]
Greek Original:
Ναύσταθμον: τὸν λιμένα. ἐφράττοντο δὲ καὶ δέρματι οἱ τόποι πρὸς τὸ μὴ βλάπτεσθαι τὰ σανιδώματα. ἢ ὅτι ὁ ναυτικὸς στρατὸς ναύσταθμος καλεῖται.
The headword is in the accusative case, evidently quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica: see the references at Photius nu53 Theodoridis.
[2] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 95 (web address 1), where the term ναύφαρκτον ["ship-fenced"] occurs. LSJ s.v. notes instances of this extended sense of the headword ('hence of ships assembled in a roadstead') in Plutarch.
