Headword: *sumblhth=|
Adler number: sigma,1371
Translated headword: comparable, intelligible
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] able to be recognized.[1] "When, by a volition greater and not at all intelligible to human thought, Alpheios had -- in a way -- died [...]."[2]
Greek Original:
*sumblhth=|: duname/nh| e)pignwsqh=nai. boulh=| krei/ttoni kai\ a)nqrwpi/nh| gnw/mh| ou)damw=s sumblhth=| tro/pon tina\ tou= *)alfeiou= a)poqano/ntos.
[1] The headword, presumably extracted from the quotation given, is feminine dative singular of sumblhto/s (cf. sigma 1370).
[2] Aelian fr. 324 Domingo-Forasté (326 Hercher); cf. beta 430. Adler notes Bernhardy's opinion that 'died' in this quotation -- which he considered textually corrupt -- is a figure of speech. For antiquity's best-known Alpheios see alpha 1448, alpha 1449.
