Greek display:    

Headword: Συνεύνιον
Adler number: sigma,1520
Translated headword: couch-fellow
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] bed-fellow.
Greek Original:
Συνεύνιον: σύγκοιτον.
Notes:
Accusative cases, the headword one evidently quoted from somewhere. Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius sigma776, where Theodoridis regards the transmitted headword συνεύνιον as an error for σύνευνον . Adler had already drawn attention to Sophocles, Ajax 1301, where ξύνευνον occurs; Theodoridis adds Pindar, Olympians 1.88, which has σύνευνον itself; and [DW] see also e.g. (?)Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 866.
cf. sigma 1519.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; gender and sexuality; poetry; tragedy; women
