Headword: Σηπεδόνος
Adler number: sigma,330
Translated headword: sepedon
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[no gloss]
Greek Original:
Σηπεδόνος.
Note:
Genitive singular -- evidently extracted from somewhere -- of a feminine noun which has two related senses: a condition of decay/putrefaction/rot (cf. under epsilon 3711) and a snake whose bite causes the condition; see generally LSJ s.v. In the latter sense there is a instance of the genitive in Nicander, Theriaca 320, which prompted scholiastic comment and probably lies behind the present entry also.
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; poetry; zoology
