Search results for theta,40 in Adler number:
Greek display:    

Headword: Θάμνοις
Adler number: theta,40
Translated headword: copses, thickets
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] places with plants.
Greek Original:
Θάμνοις: συμφύτοις τόποις.
The headword, in the dative plural, is evidently quoted from somewhere. Adler took the source to be Homer, Odyssey 5.471, where θάμνοισ' occurs, and she compared also Hesychius (theta85, theta87, theta88) and a scholion on Homer, Iliad 11.156. However, C. Theodoridis in his Photius edition (vol.II p.C) shows that the true source is Aristophanes, Birds 615; see the scholia there.
See also theta 39, and under epsilon 1440 and omicron 477.
