Headword: Ὑπ' αὐγάς
Adler number: upsilon,170
Translated headword: at day-break
Vetting Status: high

Same entry in Photius (upsilon83 Theodoridis) and elsewhere, including Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon. Its appearance in Timaeus is thus probably generated by the occurrence of the headword phrase in Plato, Phaedrus 268A (so Theodoridis) or 269A. For other instances -- and there are many in all genres -- see e.g. Homer, Odyssey 2.181 (web address 1) and Euripides, Hecuba 1154 (web address 2).
