Headword: Οὐδ' ἀπὸ γῆς ὤνυσεν
Adler number: omicron,778
Translated headword: it did not even rain from cornices
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In reference to the smallest degree.
Greek Original:
Οὐδ' ἀπὸ γῆς ὤνυσεν: ἐπὶ τοῦ ἐλαχίστου.
Note:
The headword is a proverbial phrase textually corrupted, here and in Apostolius 13.14, into something untranslatable: οὐδ' ἀπὸ γῆς ὤνυσεν . See rather Photius, Lexicon omicron605 Theodoridis, whose version from Pausanias the Atticist -- οὐδ' ἀπὸ γείσων ὕσεν -- is translated here.
Keywords: architecture; daily life; definition; imagery; proverbs
