Headword: καὶ Πτητικὰ ζῷα
Adler number: pi,3026
Translated headword: would fly
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] (?)flies.[1]

Greek Original:
Πτῆται: πέτεται. καὶ Πτητικὰ ζῷα, τὰ πετόμενα.
NB: the SOL headword is, wrongly, the supplementary one of the entry; it ought to be πτῆται (on which see next note).
[1] = Synagoge pi760, Photius pi1475 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius pi4225. From commentary on Homer, Iliad 15.170, where πτῆται occurs (its only attestation outside commentary and lexicography) in a meteorological image. The headword πτῆται is subjunctive -- registered under LSJ s.v. πέτομαι , the present glossing verb -- and Theodoridis notes with sympathy the view of Lobeck and Dindorf that the gloss, transmitted as πέτεται , ought actually to be πέτηται .
[2] Phrase probably quoted from Aristotle or Theophrastus (though 'animals' is usually left implicit). Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in mss AF.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; imagery; philosophy; poetry; science and technology; zoology
