Headword: Ὕμνιδι
Adler number: upsilon,117
Translated headword: in Hymnis
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
From a nominative hymnis. [The genitive is] hymnidos.
Greek Original:
Ὕμνιδι: ἀπὸ ὕμνις εὐθείας. ὕμνιδος.
Notes:
A cryptic entry as it stands, but almost certainly to be connected with alphaiota 364 and alphaiota 377 (and similar entries in other lexica: Photius s.vv. αἰτούμενος and αἰτήσασθαι and Hesychius s.vv. βάκηλος and παρυφίς ), i.e. from a citation of Menander's lost comedy of that name (Kassel-Austin, PCG VI.2 pp. 227-230).
Hymnis was the name of a hetaira (epsilon 3265, epsilon 3266); she reappears in one of Lucian's Dialogues of the Courtesans.
Keywords: comedy; dialects, grammar, and etymology; gender and sexuality; women
