Headword: Πυκτεύειν
Adler number: pi,3156
Translated headword: to box, to spar
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A kind of gymnasium and of wrestling-school.
Greek Original:
Πυκτεύειν: εἶδος γυμνασίου καὶ παλαίστρας.
Note:
Same (odd) entry in Photius and the Lexica Segueriana. Something evidently went wrong early in the lexicographical tradition; perhaps there was an appropriate gloss for the infinitive followed by another headword πυκτεῖον (cf. pi 3157) with the present gloss.
Keywords: athletics; daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology
