Headword: Ὀρθρία
Adler number: omicron,584
Translated headword: orthria
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the condition/state of orthros.[1]
Greek Original:
Ὀρθρία: ἡ τοῦ ὄρθρου κατάστασις.
Notes:
The headword is an adjective in the nominative (and vocative) feminine singular, which here presupposes the feminine noun ὥρα ; cf. omicron 585, kappa 1860 (gloss), and see LSJ s.v.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (496).
[1] In the gloss, ὄρθρου is the genitive singular of the masculine noun ὄρθρος . LSJ s.v. defines it as daybreak, dawn, but Wallace [below], reviewing all the evidence, insists on the dark, pre-dawn hours of night.
