Headword: Ὀσιράζουσαν
Adler number: omicron,694
Translated headword: Osiris-worshipping
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This passage is erroneous in the [master] copy, but ends nevertheless with μαγεύουσαν ["serving as high priestess"], for it writes at the end: "Already he had expelled abominable practices into the hinterlands, and into Alexandria, which used to worship Osiris and served as high priestess of the East."
Greek Original:
Ὀσιράζουσαν: ὁ τόπος οὗτος ἐν τῷ ἀντιγράφῳ ἔσφαλτο, καταστρέφει δὲ ὅμως εἰς τὸ μαγεύουσαν: γράφει γὰρ ἐν τῷ τέλει: ἤδη δὲ καὶ ἐς τὰς ὑπερορίους ἀπῳκίσε τὴν ἀπόρρητον θέμιν, ἔς τε Ἀλεξανδρείαν τὴν Ὀσιράζουσαν καὶ τῆς ἕω πολλαχῇ τὴν μαγεύουσαν.
Note:
From alpha 4174 (q.v.); entry lacking in manuscripts AFS. The headword participle, in the accusative case, is extracted from latter part of the entry.
Keywords: biography; dialects, grammar, and etymology; geography; imagery; philosophy; religion
