Headword: Phthinuthôn
Adler number: phi,495
Translated headword: wasting away
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning who/that which is] perishing.
Greek Original:

Note:
Likewise in the Synagoge (phi93) and Photius' Lexicon (phi147 Theodoridis). The headword is present participle, masculine nominative singular, of fqinu/qw. For the glossing cf. also a scholion on Homer, Iliad 2.346 (where fqinu/qein occurs). However, as Theodoridis notes, fqinu/qwn itself occurs three times in the poems of Gregory of Nazianzus; and indeed this is the gloss in the Lex. Greg.
