Adler number: omicron,955
Translated headword: aurochs
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"and the horns of an aurochs[1] adorned with brilliantly shining gold".[2]
Greek Original:
Οὖρος. καὶ βοὸς οὖρον ἀσκητὸν χρυσῷ παμφανόωντι κέρας.
Notes:
The unglossed headword (on which see next note) is in the nominative case.
[1] (Read the genitive οὔρου here, with Paton, rather than the transmitted accusative οὖρον ; see already at lambda 609.) The animal βοῦς οὖρος is probably the wild aurochs (Latin urus), now extinct. See LSJ s.v. οὖρος D (web address 1) and web address 2.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.332.3-4 (Hadrian), describing a dedication that Trajan made to Zeus (see Paton ad loc. note 1).
