Vetting Status: high
[πετεινόν ] and [sc. also spelled] πετεηνόν .
Greek Original:
Πετεινὸν καὶ Πετεηνόν.
The second element here, πετεηνός , is an epic and poetic variant of the first, πετεινός ; other variants are πετηνός and πτηνός (see LSJ s.v.).
If either πετεινόν (well-attested in the Septuagint and elsewhere) or πετεηνόν -- masculine accusative singulars or neuter nominative/accusative singulars -- are quoted from somewhere, their source is unidentifiable. Note, however, that Hesychius has an entry for the genitive plural πετεηνῶν , glossed with πετεινῶν . (It is quoted from Homer, Odyssey 13.87; see the scholia there.)
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; poetry; zoology
