Headword: Πύλῳ
Adler number: pi,3170
Translated headword: [in a] gateway
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
In Homer [πύλῳ is used] instead of ἐν πύλῃ . "In a gateway, among the dead."[1] As [Homer calls] δείλην ["afternoon"] δείελον , and ἑσπέραν ["evening"] ἕσπερον .[2]
Greek Original:
Πύλῳ: πὰρ Ὁμήρῳ ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐν πύλῃ. ἐν πύλῳ, ἐν νεκύεσσιν. ὡς δείελον τὴν δείλην: καὶ ἕσπερον τὴν ἑσπέραν.
Notes:
[1] Homer, Iliad 5.397, where however editors prefer to interpret the phrase as ἐν Πύλῳ "in Pylos" (cf. pi 3167). The note comes from scholia on this verse.
[2] These are added as examples of other nouns where Homer uses a second-declension (thematic stem) form instead of a first-declension (a-stem) form.
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; geography
