Headword: Θέμιν
Adler number: theta,114
Translated headword: right
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] justice.[1]
Boucheta is a city of Epeiros; the word is neuter plural. Philochorus says that it got its name because Themis went there, mounted on an ox, during the flood of Deukalion.[2]
Greek Original:
Θέμιν: δικαιοσύνην. Βούχετα πόλις ἐστὶ τῆς Ἠπείρου, οὐδετέρως καὶ πληθυντικῶς λεγομένη, ἥν φησι Φιλόχορος ὠνομάσθαι διὰ τὸ τὴν Θέμιν ἐπὶ βοὸς ὀχουμένην ἐλθεῖν ἐκεῖ κατὰ τὸν Δευκαλίωνος κατακλυσμόν.
Notes:
[1] The headword is the accusative singular of θέμις . Same or similar glossing in other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere; cf. theta 115, theta 117.
[2] From beta 478, q.v.
Keywords: aetiology; chronology; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; geography; historiography; mythology; zoology
