Headword: Προπόλεος
Adler number: pi,2570
Translated headword: city-entrance
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"[... they] having cut off the town's city-entrance adornment."[1]
Greek Original:
Προπόλεος. τὸν προπόλεον κόσμον τοῦ ἄστεος ἀποκείραντες.
Notes:
Adler reports a comparable headword in the Ambrosian Lexicon (1150). Here, unglossed, it is nominative singular of this very rare adjective, presumably generated by the accusative singular in the quotation.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's opinion, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable, but the key phrase τὸν προπόλεον κόσμον is attested in Basil of Caesarea, On Gordius the martyr PG 31.489.30 (in an image about beehives).
