Headword: Ῥαχίαν
Adler number: rho,59
Translated headword: beach
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The Attic-speakers [use this word to mean] the shore, and the place on it where the wave breaks. And Thucydides [uses the word] in this way.[1] But the Ionians [use the word for] the ebb and return of the sea.[2]
Greek Original:
Ῥαχίαν: οἱ Ἀττικοὶ τὴν ἀκτήν, καὶ τὸν τόπον αὐτόν, ᾧ προσαράττει τὸ κῦμα. καὶ Θουκυδίδης οὕτως. οἱ δὲ Ἴωνες τὴν ἄμπωτιν καὶ τὴν ἀναχώρησιν τῆς θαλάττης.
Notes:
cf. generally rho 60.
[1] Thucydides 4.10.5 (web address 1); accusative case, as the present headword.
[2] In Herodotus the word refers to a flood-tide, as opposed to ἄμπωτις , the ebb-tide (see LSJ s.v., and cf. alpha 1656).
