Headword: Προχοαί
Adler number: pi,2935
Translated headword: outlets
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the mouths of rivers issuing into the sea; and the discharge of every [sc. kind of] water.
Greek Original:
Προχοαί: αἱ τῶν ποταμῶν ἐξοδευτικαὶ ἀφέσεις εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν: καὶ ἡ παντὸς ὕδατος ἐκροή.
Note:
Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius pi1427 Theodoridis. The headword, nominative plural, is perhaps quoted from somewhere in that form, and if so, the likeliest source is Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica (2.743 or 4.312); however, the present gloss shows similarities with a scholion on the dative plural in Argonautica 1.11 (and already, as that scholiast notes, in Homer, Iliad 17.263).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; geography; poetry
