Headword: Ὑπήνη
Adler number: upsilon,428
Translated headword: upper-lip hair, mustache
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[The term arises] from being below, or going [below]. But the [syllable] πη [2] [is] because of the eta, from the future ἥσω ["I will send"], from ἵημι ["I send"].[1] Or [the word is formed] like εἰρήνη ["peace"], γαλήνη ["calm"].
Greek Original:
Ὑπήνη: παρὰ τὸ ὑποκάτω εἶναι, ἢ ἰέναι. τὸ δὲ πη διὰ τοῦ η, παρὰ τὸν ἥσω μέλλοντα, ἀπὸ τοῦ ἵημι. ἢ ὡς εἰρήνη, γαλήνη.
Notes:
For the headword, see also upsilon 427.
[1] cf. Philoxenus cited by Orion [Author, Myth] 155, whence Etymologicum Genuinum and Etymologicum Magnum.
[2] Bernhardy thought this should be ηνη , but Lamer disagreed (correctly, according to Adler): see bibliography below.
