Headword: Ῥικνά
Adler number: rho,165
Translated headword: shrivelled [ones]
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning ones that are] wrinkled, weak, dragged along.[1]
"In want of all food, they lay shrivelled and reduced to skeletons."[2]
Greek Original:
Ῥικνά: ἐρρυτιδωμένα, ἀσθενῆ, σεσυρμένα. πάσης δὲ ἐδωδῆς ἠπορημένοι ῥικνοὶ καὶ κατεσκελετευμένοι ἔκειντο.
Notes:
[1] Similar glossing in other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Oppian, Halieutica 5.406, from where the headword (neuter plural of this adjective) is probably quoted.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) undidentifiable. It uses the masculine nominative plural of the adjective.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; historiography; history; medicine; poetry
