Headword: Ὀράμνους
Adler number: omicron,495
Translated headword: branches
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In the Epigrams: "here the soil growing green with a flourishing branch showed all the grace of fruitful foliage."[1]
Greek Original:
Ὀράμνους: ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: ἐνθάδε μὲν χλοάουσα τεθηλότι βῶλος ὀράμνῳ φυλλάδος εὐκάρπου πᾶσαν ἔδειξε χάριν.
Notes:
The unglossed headword is accusative plural of ὄραμνος , a later variant of ὀρόδαμνος (omicron 619). It must be quoted from somewhere, very probably from Nicander, who uses the form several times. In the quotation which follows, the word occurs in the dative singular.
[1] Greek Anthology 5.291.1-2 (Agathias).
Keywords: botany; dialects, grammar, and etymology; imagery; poetry
