Greek display:    

Headword: *(/oria e)qnw=n
Adler number: omicron,557
Translated headword: boundaries of nations
Vetting Status: high
['Boundaries of nations'] and 'boundaries of fathers'.
Greek Original:
*(/oria e)qnw=n kai\ o(/ria pate/rwn.
Perhaps from Symeon Metaphrastes, opined Adler, who also noted that Jonathan Toup (1713-1785) suggested *persw=n ("of Persians") for the transmitted pate/rwn. Any necessity for emendation, however, is arguable, given the fact that both of these phrases are well-attested separately and need not be supposed to be presented here as a single one. "Boundaries of nations", in particular, comes from Deuteronomy 32.8.
For o(/rion, see generally omicron 564.
