Headword: Θαλλός
Adler number: theta,24
Translated headword: olive-shoot
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] a branch of an olive-tree, or the entire growth.[1]
"Having olive-shoots, they sent men, about ten in number."[2]
Greek Original:
Θαλλός: κλάδος ἐλαίας, ἢ πᾶν τὸ θάλλον. ἔχοντες θαλλοὺς ὡσεὶ δέκα τὸν ἀριθμὸν ἔπεμψαν ἄνδρας.
Notes:
cf. generally theta 25.
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica, and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 22.87 (where θάλος occurs: web address 1). For 'olive-tree' see epsilon 764.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Kuster, as Adler notes, thought that it would be improved by emending nominative ἔχοντες to accusative ἔχοντας .)
