Headword: Πυραμίς
Adler number: pi,3190
Translated headword: pyramid
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A particular [kind of] house.[1]

Greek Original:
Πυραμίς: οἰκία τις. ὅτι τὴν πυράμην ἄμην λέγομεν ἡμεῖς, οὐκ ὀρθῶς.
Notes:
[1] cf. Hesychius, who glosses the nominative plural as οἰκοδομήματα γεωμετρικά, ἐπὶ τά κάτω κατερχόμενα . For such a plural see under kappa 2804; and cf. also rho 211.
