Headword: Στεγναί
Adler number: sigma,1026
Translated headword: watertight [ones]
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] solid [ones].
Greek Original:
Στεγναί: στερεαί.
Note:
Likewise in other lexica. The headword is feminine nominative plural of στεγνός , variant of στεγανός (sigma 1020, sigma 1021, sigma 1023). Though this form occurs in the Hippocratic corpus, it is taken to be quoted from Proverbs 31.27 LXX στεγναὶ διατριβαὶ οἴκων αὐτῆς "The occupations of her household are steady," a passage which occasioned patristic commentary.
