Headword: Θαλαμίδιοι κῶπαι
Adler number: theta,8
Translated headword: lowest oars, hold-oars
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Those [oars] that propel gently.[1]
Herodotus [writes]: "[Megabates gave orders] for him to be bound and put him through an oar-port of the ship in such a way that his head was outside and his body inside."[2]
Greek Original:
Θαλαμίδιοι κῶπαι: αἱ ἠρέμα ἐλαύνουσαι. Ἡρόδοτος: τοῦτον δῆσαι θαλαμίης διελόντας τῆς νηὸς κατὰ τοῦτο, ἔξω μὲν κεφαλὴν ποιεῦντας, ἔσω δὲ τὸ σῶμα.
Notes:
[1] The headword phrase, in the nominative plural, is similarly (and oddly) glossed in other lexica; it is presumably quoted from somewhere.
cf. generally theta 5.
[2] Herodotus 5.33.2 (punishment of a lazy Myndian sea-captain). See web address 1.
