Headword: Ὄρθιος νόμος
Adler number: omicron,574
Translated headword: steep-pitched style
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the citharodic [sc. style] of harmony. There were seven.
Greek Original:
Ὄρθιος νόμος: ὁ κιθαρῳδικὸς τῆς ἁρμονίας. ἦσαν δὲ ἑπτά.
Notes:
From a gloss on Herodotus 1.24.5, where the headword phrase occurs (in the story of Arion [Author, Myth]: alpha 3886).
For the meanings of nomos as a fixed style of composition and of harmony see nu 478 and alpha 3977. On this particular nomos and the association of Terpander (tau 354) with "seven nomoi" see omicron 575 and omicron 573. The citharodic nomoi (for the stringed cithara) are distinguished from those for the pipe.
