Headword: Ὁρμίσκος
Adler number: omicron,604
Translated headword: mini-necklace
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Mini-necklace] and cords: an adornment around the neck, ear-rings, (?)lowering-cords.[1]
Greek Original:
Ὁρμίσκος καὶ Ὅρμοι: περιτραχήλιος κόσμος, ἐνώτια, χαλαστήρια.
Notes:
This double headword, as printed by Adler, consists of the nominative singular of the diminutive ὁρμίσκος (cf. under upsilon 477) and the nominative (and vocative) plural of ὅρμος ; see LSJ s.vv. Note however that in ms F, and the equivalent entry in Photius (Lexicon omicron498 Theodoridis), both nouns are singular.
[1] The headwords are identically glossed at Lexica Segueriana 320.27 and in the Synagoge. Photius has an identical gloss for two singular substantives: see above. Hesychius s.v. ὁρμίσκοι and s.v. ὅρμος provides similar glosses. John Philoponus, De vocabulis quae diversum significatum exhibent secundum differentiam accentus s.v. ὅρμος interprets this paroxytone (accent on the penult; Smyth, 157) form as meaning λιμήν (harbor, cf. omicron 605) and transmits only the first glossing phrase for an oxytone (accent on the ultima, ibid.) form, ὁρμός ; cf. Etymologicum Magnum 631.30 (Kallierges). The third glossing term, χαλαστήρια (neuter plural), is extremely rare, and unless it is misplaced here it must have some meaning other than the one attested in Appian (ropes for lowering a portcullis).
