Greek display:    

Headword: *sfigano/n
Adler number: sigma,1745
Translated headword: vehement(ly)
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] warlike/in a warlike manner.
Greek Original:
*sfigano/n: polemiko/n.
Likewise in Photius (sigma879 Theodoridis) and similarly already in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon, where the headword -- masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective -- is regarded as correctly transmitted: not the otherwise unattested sfigano/n but sfedano/n. As such, it is likely to be quoted from Homer, who uses the neuter adverbially: see esp. Iliad 11.165, where the D scholia have one of the glosses, kataphktiko/n, used by Timaeus.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; ethics; military affairs
