Headword: Οὐδός
Adler number: omicron,826
Translated headword: threshold
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] support,[1] base, the [thing] below the door; or a foundation; or a step.[2]
Greek Original:
Οὐδός: φλιά, βατήρ, τὸ κάτω τῆς θύρας: ἢ ἔδαφος: ἢ βαθμός.
The headword is a masculine noun in the nominative singular. See LSJ s.v. οὐδός (A); cf. omicron 827, chi 193 gloss. (For B, see omicron 46.)
[1] For φλιά see phi 536. As used here, it could be the accusative (and nominative and vocative) dual of the noun, i.e. an accusative of respect (Smyth, 1601b), "in respect of a pair of doorposts"; but it is more likely to be nominative singular, in the sense of "support" (see LSJ s.v., 4), or even, more broadly, "lintel" (LSJ s.v., 2).
[2] The headword is identically glossed in the Synagoge and Photius' Lexicon (omicron623 Theodoridis); cf. Hesychius omicron1593; Lexica Segueriana 322.1; Erotian 25.9 (Klein, p. 54.19); a scholion to Homer, Iliad 6.375 (web address 1), where the headword appears in the accusative singular, οὐδόν ; and Apion s.v. οὐδόν . Adler also cites the Lexicon de Spiritu, L.C. Valckenaer, ed.
