Headword: Ὑμήττιον μέλι
Adler number: upsilon,111
Translated headword: Hymettian honey
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The [sort] useful for healing. Hymettos is a place in Attica, near Athens.
Greek Original:
Ὑμήττιον μέλι: τὸ εὔχρηστον πρὸς ἰατρείαν. Ὑμηττὸς δέ ἐστι τόπος τῆς Ἀττικῆς περὶ τὰς Ἀθήνας.
Note:
For (Mount) Hymettos, see already upsilon 110. About honey, see generally mu 499. The present headword phrase, with the same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius upsilon52 Theodoridis), is presumably extracted from somewhere -- perhaps the long Machon fr. 18 Gow, preserved in Athenaeus.
Keywords: comedy; food; geography; medicine
