Headword: Πάτριος θεός
Adler number: pi,794
Translated headword: ancestral god
Vetting Status: high
[no gloss]
Greek Original:
Πάτριος θεός.
The headword phrase in this nominative singular form occurs only here and in the scholia to Euripides, Rhesus 703, where it is used to gloss the tragedian's phrase τὸν ὕπατον θεῶν ("supreme of gods"). However, it is not self-evidently a quoted phrase but may rather be simply generic. See e.g. Herodotus 1.172.2 (dative plural).
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; religion; tragedy
