Headword: Πυρακτῶν
Adler number: pi,3188
Translated headword: roasting
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning one who/which is] torching, intensely burning.[1]
Greek Original:
Πυρακτῶν: ἐμπυρσεύων, σφοδρῶς καίων.
Notes:
The headword is present active participle, nominative singular masculine, of the verb πυρακτέω .
[1] = Synagoge pi802, Lexica Segueriana 355.26, Photius pi1548 Theodoridis. For the first gloss alone see Hesychius pi4386, which reads ἐμπυρεύων ('setting fire to') as the gloss rather than ἐμπυρσεύων . The latter is less frequently attested and so might be a corruption of the reading reported in Hesychius. For the second gloss alone see Etymologicum Gudianum 488.45. Outside lexicography the headword is attested only in Basil of Caesarea Homily on the Hexaemeron 3.7 (PG 29.69b, referring to the ether), and orthodoxy holds that that passage is the origin of these entries.
