Search results for upsilon,248 in Adler number:
Greek display:    

Headword: Ὑπερβόρειοι
Adler number: upsilon,248
Translated headword: Hyperboreans
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A somewhat northerly people, [sc. but] nearer than the Scythians.
Greek Original:
Ὑπερβόρειοι: ἔθνος ἀρκτικώτερον, καὶ ἐνδότερον τῶν Σκυθῶν.
Notes:
For the Hyperboreans -- literally those who live beyond Boreas, the north wind (beta 390) -- cf. already upsilon 247 and see generally OCD(4) s.v. For the Scythians see e.g. sigma 703, sigma 704.
The present entry (or its source) is heterodox in placing the Hyperboreans 'nearer' (sc. to the Mediterranean centre of gravity) than the Scythians.
