Headword: Πτυκτίον
Adler number: pi,3061
Translated headword: folder
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] book.[1]
Greek Original:
Πτυκτίον: βιβλίον.
Notes:
= Hesychius pi4248; cf. Synagoge pi771 and Photius, Lexicon pi1486, where the spelling of the headword is πύκτιον (as it is in some mss. of the Suda).
The headword is a neuter singular noun, nominative or accusative. Latte in his edition of Hesychius connects this lemma with Gregory of Nazianzus, Epistle 202, where the headword appears. (Adler also cites Wentzel as citing a scholion to Gregory that corroborates the association.)
For words related to this one see the other entries from pi 3060 through pi 3063 and pi 3066 and pi 3067.
[1] That is, a book in codex form, not a papyrus roll. See Lampe s.v. For the concept cf. pi 3060, pi 3062.
