Headword: Παρακονᾶν
Adler number: pi,368
Translated headword: to whet against
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] to rub up against in kissing.
Greek Original:
Παρακονᾶν: τὸ ἐν τῷ φιλεῖν διατρίβειν.
Notes:
= Photius pi250 Theodoridis; and cf. already Hesychius pi551 [= Comica adespota fr. 406 Kassel-Austin], who helpfully specifies that cheeks and jaws are to be the locus of this particular amatory friction.
Apart from these three lexicographical references, this meaning for the verb in question (no.II in LSJ s.v.) is unattested.
For φιλέω as 'kiss', see LSJ s.v., I.4.
Keywords: comedy; daily life; definition; gender and sexuality; imagery; science and technology
