Headword: Ῥιψαδαγείρων
Adler number: rho,188
Translated headword: rhipsadageiron
Vetting Status: high
[no gloss]
Greek Original:
A corrupt and impenetrable entry. Also (and likewise unglossed) in Photius rho131 Theodoridis and, as the even worse ῥιψαγαδείρων , in the Synagoge (rho40). Porson's edition of Photius had applied word-division to produce the phrase ῥιψάδ' ἀγείρων , but while the participle 'he collecting' (cf. alpha 211) is intelligible, a feminine noun ῥιψάς (of which this would be the accusative singular) merely replaces one enigma with another.
Adler notes Bernhardy's suspicion that the toponym Γαδείρων (genitive of gamma 7) is in there somewhere.
