Headword: Ὑγιής
Adler number: upsilon,31
Translated headword: healthy
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] someone who is moist [ὑγριής ].[1] He who has fluids,[2] and is alive. The dead [sc. are called] corpses [alibantes];[3] from their not having fluid [libas], i.e. moisture.
Greek Original:
Ὑγιής: ὑγριής τις ὤν. ὁ δίυγρος, καὶ ζῶν. ἀλίβαντες οἱ νεκροί: παρὰ τὸ μὴ ἔχειν λιβάδα, ἤγουν ὑγρασίαν.
Notes:
[1] cf. Eustathius on Homer, Iliad 11.724, and the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 6.201; also Etymologicum Magnum and Etymologicum Gudianum s.v. ὑγιής , where this false etymological association is attributed to Herodian.
[2] cf. delta 1284.
[3] See alpha 1210; see also kappa 1530 and omicron 413. Again the etymology is dubious.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; medicine; science and technology
