Adler number: theta,308
Translated headword: Theia's descendant
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] Boreas the [sc. north] wind. But 'descendant' [ἀμνάμμων ] [means] offspring. For as Hesiod says, the winds [are] offspring of Theia.[1]
Greek Original:
Θείας ἀμνάμμων: ὁ Βορέας ὁ ἄνεμος. Ἀμνάμμων δὲ ἀπόγονος. ὡς γὰρ Ἡσίοδος λέγει, τῆς Θείας ἀπόγονοι οἱ ἄνεμοι.
The headword phrase -- in which the noun should be ἀμνάμων (single nu) -- is quoted from Callimachus, Hecale fr. 338 Pfeiffer.
cf. alpha 1607 and LSJ s.v. ἄμναμος (web address 1).
[1] Hesiod, Theogony 371-80, where Theia's daughter Eos (Dawn) is the mother of Boreas.
